Database Trials

From time to time the college library has the opportunity to provide the RVC community with trial access to scholarly information resources via the Internet. These trials are for a limited time, and for the purpose of allowing you to evaluate the database or service.

Try-It Illinois

Try-It Illinois 2015 is available now!

Try-It! Illinois offers the staffs and library users of the more than 5,000 ILLINET member libraries the opportunity to survey and evaluate a wide variety of electronic resources. Thanks to the partnerships between the Illinois State Library and the participating electronic resource vendors, there is no charge for accessing these databases during Try-It! Illinois from October 1, 2015-November 30, 2015. This trial period gives libraries and users the opportunity to survey and evaluate the electronic databases for future consideration.
