Tip of the Week! National Library Week Freebies

To commemorate National Library Week in the U.S., various publishers are offering U.S.-based users free access to some of their products from 13-19 April 2014, including:

Oxford University Press USA [access]
- "Libraries are a vital part of our communities - they feed our curiosity, bolster our professional knowledge, and provide a launchpad for intellectual discovery. In celebration of these cornerstone institutions, we are offering unprecedented free access to all our Online Resources [excluding journals] to support our shared mission of education." Check out the multi-disciplinary and law resources, in particular. (Note on 15 April: Apparently, because of technical difficulties, some resources are not available after all!)

ProQuest [access]
- Five databases will be freely available this week.

SAGE [access]
- "Register for a free trial to any SAGE or CQ Press library product and you will automatically be entered to win a six-month subscription to that product. All you have to do to enter is sign up during National Library Week!"

I plan to explore these databases to see what relevant items can be retrieved, so I'll add some notes about my findings accordingly!
