Library trial of the SPIE Digital Library

The Library is pleased to announce that we have started a 6 month trial of the SPIE Digital Library. It will run from October 2012 through March 2013.

Please use this proxied link to access content in the SPIE Digital Library.

The Library uses trials to help determine if there’s a need for access to journals or databases that we don’t currently subscribe to. Use of the SPIE Digital Library during this trial will help us decide whether a subscription is warranted in the spring.
