Current trials

The purpose of trials

A trial means that users within Stockholm University have the opportunity to use a database for a short period without a subscription. The provider offers the opportunity to examine the content and functionality before purchase because it is often a bigger investment to subscribe to a database.

After the trial

After the trial the library evaluates the usage. Comments from researchers and students, price, content and functionality are also factored into the purchase decision.

Your feedback is welcome. Contact the library and let us know what you think about the databases on trial. This way you help us to obtain the media resources needed for the teaching and research conducted at Stockholm University.

Stay tuned for news about trials

The library publishes news about each trial. Keep an eye on the library website, the faculty's websites and other places on to monitor new resources for trial in your field.

The databases are also available under Databases A-Z on the library website during the trial.
