Database Trials

From time to time the college library has the opportunity to provide the RVC community with trial access to scholarly information resources via the Internet. These trials are for a limited time, and for the purpose of allowing you to evaluate the database or service.

Try-It! Illinois


Secretary of State and State Librarian Jesse White and the Illinois State Library are pleased to announce that Try-It Illinois, the twentieth annual statewide database trial, will be available October 1 through November 30. Try-It! Illinois offers library staffs and patrons 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.

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.

Please note: Contact the RVC Library Reference Desk at (815) 921-4619 or to obtain login credentials.
