Hi all,

If there is anyone who thinks they would be eligible for (and benefit from)
access to the research accounts as mentioned below, please get in touch
with User:Ocaasi as suggested in the email.  Note that although there
aren't any accounts for Australian specific services available, a reminder
that one of the better local resources - NLA's Trove (
http://trove.nla.gov.au/) - is free!

Regards,

Charles
