…historic newspapers, US declassified information, LGBT resources, Independent comics and graphic novels, Film and drama collections and much much more!
Over the next few weeks UEA has trial access to some great resources for you to explore and use. These are expensive resources and we would probably only be able to afford to buy a handful of them, so if any of these are of interest or use in your studies then please make good use of them and tell us whether you think they’re worth having.
The full list is below. All these are listed alphabetically by title in FIND DATABASES. The easiest way to access these resources is to go to FIND DATABASES and type TRIAL in the search box. This will bring up the full list along with links that will work on or off campus.
