Free Trials in Celebration of National Library Week

In honor of National Library Week, a few publishers have opened their firewalls to offer public access to some of their otherwise "by subscription only" databases.

Hat tip to Victoria Szymczak, a contributing editor on Law Library Blog for the trials listed below:

ABC-CLIO eBooks - Register with basic information about yourself and your institution to gain full access to their resources through National Library Week.

Gale - Registration includes downloading a widget, but once you are registered, you will have access to Archives Unbound, Global Issues in Context and Global Reference on the Environment databases.

Credo Reference - Register for access to a variety of online reference materials, including 480 full text searchable reference publications from over 70 well-known publishers.

ProQuest - Includes access to two of their History and Genealogy databases: African American Heritage and Historical Newspapers - Black Newspapers, as well as CultureGrams, eLibrary, and SIRS Discoverer and Reader products.

Sage Journals Online - With a simple registration, you will have full access to their resources for free until 5/15.
