Electronic resource trials: Current trials

This guide holds information on electronic resources under trial by the Library.

Electronic resource trials


UniSA Library aims to provide teachers, researchers and students with the most useful resources to carry out their work.

To help us make the right choices we arrange access to new electronic resources on a trial basis. We encourage you to use them and provide us with feedback. There are many valuable resources which could be considered for subscription, so please assist in the decision-making process by providing your thoughts.

Counseling and Therapy in Video: The Symptom Media Collection

Ideal for counseling, psychology, social work, nursing and other behavioral healthcare courses, The Symptom Media Collection helps students better recognize mental health disorders and provide accurate diagnoses via 400+ streaming mental health videos aligned to DSM-5®/ICD-10 content. The Symptom Media Collection also provides assessment options for faculty with 2 versions of each film available for over 90 titles.

Policy Commons

Policy Commons is a one-stop community platform for objective, fact-based research from the world’s leading policy experts, nonpartisan think tanks, IGOs and NGOs. We treat think-tank publishing as a formal body of literature in its own right, with tools to systematically search it, cite it, understand its impact, catalogue it, and preserve it for the long term.

Available from 29 April until 17 June 2022
