Free trials of protocols, images and e-books from Springer
VCU Libraries is participating in trials of three online products from Springer. These trials are an opportunity to test and evaluate resources under consideration for addition to our online collections. Members of the VCU community are invited to explore these resources and help inform future decisions about purchases. Trial products are only available from computers on the campus network. Trials end on October 30, 2009. Please send comments and feedback to Lynne Turman.
