Include the following with your request:
To request trials or discuss database resources that would benefit your courses and research, contact your department liaison librarian.
Article databases and other electronic collections typically require annual licensing agreements that result in an ongoing cost to the college. While we are happy to set up trials and explore purchasing options, the addition of a new database often requires the termination of an existing one.

See the library's guidelines for evaluating journal subscriptions for additional information.
