Library Database Trials: Database Trials

Database Trial Guidelines

Database trials allow the HPU community to access subscription databases to critically review their content, functionality and overall use.

Trials are arranged by the Library at the initiative of librarians or by requests from the HPU community.  Faculty, staff and students should coordinate with the appropriate librarian subject specialist in requesting database trials.  


  • Trials not arranged by the Library will not be posted on the Library Database Trials’ page and will not be considered for acquisition.
  • Although faculty, staff and student input is welcome and encouraged, the final responsibility for database selection rests with the Director of Libraries and Learning Commons
