As I'm responsible for journal subscriptions I have been asked by academics and our liaison librarians to set up trials in the past.
We then use them to assess the usage levels, which helps us to make the right decision when it comes to starting a subscription.
Best wishes, Olena

Subject: [lis-e-resources] Trials
I wonder if any of you would be so kind as to share your experience with Trials? Do you follow a set criteria for accepting a trial request and do you have a policy you would be willing to share? Do your Academics set up their own individual trials or do they all come through the library?
