[Eril-l] criteria for e-resources on A-Z databases list

Ours are fairly pragmatic. First, everything that is database-ish that is
paid for, that's probably an easy set to define, although things like Wiley
Major Reference Works can cause trouble as to whether they're databases or
single encyclopedias.
But when it comes to the "free stuff", we basically go with the principle
that if it's good enough to be included in one of our subject guides
(homegrown equivalent of libguides), then it's good enough to be in our
databases A-to-Z list.

So that's just slightly more restrictive than Steve's "if a subject
librarian thinks it has value" because they have to demonstrate their value
of it by actually including it in a guide.
