‘Free’ vendor resources – approach with caution
Vendors and publishers have been making numerous announcements about “free” time-limited access to resources. While these offers may appear to provide some short-term benefits, many will have ongoing financial impacts if access is required beyond the specified free period. The impacts of using “free” time-limited resources need to be carefully considered by academics before deciding to make use of these resources in learning and teaching. Access to these resources could discontinue mid-trimester if acquisition processes are not followed.
Before using resources that are being offered for “free” on a time-limited basis, they should be assessed by the Library. Questions about resource purchases can be directed to [email protected] or by filling out the Suggest a purchase webform.
