Expanded ScienceDirect agreement doubles number of avaliable online titles

The Emory libraries are proud to announce a subscription to ScienceDirect, an online, full-text journal service. This addition to the University's periodicals collection came last fall after Emory conducted a campuswide test of this electronic resource, which makes available complete online articles for more than 400 journals published by Elsevier Science, a leading publisher of major journals in the sciences, social sciences and the humanities.

ScienceDirect provides full-text access to its journals back to 1997. Online editions are often available well ahead of print copies. ScienceDirect supports journal title, keyword, author and broad subject searching.

Last month a consortium of institutions, including Emory, Georgia Tech, Georgia State University, the Medical College of Georgia and the University of Georgia, signed an agreement with ScienceDirect, providing access to all the service's journals subscribed to by any of the consortial members.

This move now doubles the number of online titles available to Emory users and provides additional coverage in many specialized subject fields not otherwise covered in depth at Emory.

Currently, you can access and search ScienceDirect through EUCLID (www.library.emory/ edu/IG) from any campus network workstation.

For more information about ScienceDirect or to arrange a personal demonstration, please contact Betsey Patterson in Woodruff Library at librbp@emory.edu.
