Try It! Illinois 2010

September 24th, 2010

Jesse White, Secretary of State and State Librarian, and the Illinois State Library are pleased to announce that the eleventh annual Try-It! Illinois statewide database trial will be available October 1 through November 30, 2010.  Try-It! Illinois offers library staff and users an excellent opportunity to survey and evaluate a wide variety of electronic resources.  Thanks to partnerships between the Illinois State Library and the participating electronic resource vendors, there is no charge for accessing these databases during Try-It! Illinois.

You will need a login and password to access Try-it! Illinois.  Libraries are encouraged to share the Try-It! Illinois login and password with their library users, providing them the opportunity to use and recommend electronic resources for possible purchase at the local level.

Try-It! Illinois 2010 will be posted at www.finditillinois.org/tryit/

Contact Gwen Harrison beginning October 1 at gharrison@ilsos.net or 217-785-7334 to obtain the login and password.  The login and password have also been provided to regional library systems.

Do not post the Try-It! Illinois login and password on the Internet or in publicly archived electronic newsletters.  This is vital to the success of the trial and to maintaining the relationships that have been established with vendors.
