Trial electronic resources

Publishers and suppliers often provide trial access to electronic resources. This helps prospective customers evaluate a resource before considering a subscription. The Library can arrange trials on an institution-wide basis through established contacts with publishers and suppliers.

You can request a trial or comment on a trial via the Quick links. Trials currently available to University of Sheffield staff and students are listed below.

Please note: most trial resources are available on campus only. See individual trial pages for details.
