About trial databases
These electronic resources have been made available to the Claremont Colleges on a temporary basis (varying from 1 month to 1 year). These trials allow the Library to assess their importance to our Students, Faculty and Staff. The level of use each one receives helps us to make decisions regarding future subscriptions or purchases.
If you find one of these resources to be useful for your teaching or research, please let us know (be specific!) and tell a friend or colleague.
