Free Access to Databases This Week (And Forever!)
Many commercial database vendors and aggregators are marking the occasion by providing temporary free access to many of their products.
- Greenwood Publishing is providing free access to database products as diverse as Praeger Security International Online, Reader's Advisor Online and ARBAOnline (thousand of reviews of reference works). You have to register first.
- Gale is allowing free access to a long list of popular and academic collections like Literature Criticism Online, Science Resource Center, Sources in U.S. History Online: Slavery in America, and the Gale Virtual Reference Library (more than 1,700 e-books from major scientific and humanities publishers)
Here, in Ottawa, the public library system provides members remote access via their library card number to dozens of databases across a whole range of interest areas.
