Collection feedback needed in October!

Syracuse University Libraries is exploring a number of new resources this month for possible inclusion in the principal collection and we need your help! Please visit the resource trials guide and explore the resources under consideration. For each resource you explore, we ask that you provide feedback via the embedded feedback form. Any insight you can give us on how well the resource works, what it contains, and how it might be useful to you is helpful in the evaluations process.


Please note: Limited on-campus access to these resources are provided by the vendors for evaluating their usefulness and potential value to the SU community. Please see the SU Libraries policy on access to licensed resources.
