the First Review Folder section of The BioQUEST Library.
Each fieldtester of The BioQUEST Library agrees to conduct
in-depth trials of a particular module in their courses and to provide
BioQUEST with extensive feedback and evaluation of the module at the end
of the fieldtest period. Fieldtesters who do not already have a site license
may purchase a fieldtester’s license for the price of an individual license.
The fieldtesters license allows them to use the Library with their students
on multiple computers for a period of 1 year. Upon receipt of the fieldtest
report, fieldtesters will be given the opportunity to purchase a regular
site license for their institution or department at a 50% reduction from
the normal site license fee.
