Databases: Trials, Access Issues, New Acquisitions

Database Access Issues

ProQuest Ebooks Access Message: On Saturday, June 26, 2021 from 10:00 am (EDT)-6:00 pm, Ebook Central will be offline and ebooks will be unavailable. Readers may wish to download books or chapters in advance, subject to availability for your institution.

What is the user experience when EBC is offline temporarily?   

  • When a user clicks to access Ebook Central, they will see a maintenance page rather than the normal product page. Here is a screenshot of what they will see:

New Databases: 2020-2021

Current Database Trials

Occasionally, the Macdonald-Kelce Library is able to offer temporary access to research databases. This provides students, faculty, staff, and librarians a trial period to review them for possible acquisition. University of Tampa patrons will have temporary access from campus to these database trials.

Access to trial databases is restricted to users that are on campus, unless otherwise noted.
