The Library is excited to announce our subscription to the Science Direct College Edition: http://www.sciencedirect.com/college/search
This database will provide us access to some of the same Elsevier journal content that only the “big schools” usually get. The library is participating in a special program called the “ScienceDirect College Edition” that allows smaller institutions such as ours to afford Science Direct content.
Specifically the library is purchasing 2 “modules” of content:
- Health and Life Sciences Journal collection – 900 full-text peer reviewed journals
- Physical Sciences Journal collection – 600 full-text peer reviewed journals
For a complete title list go to: http://info.sciencedirect.com/licensing/primary/college/
This collection represents the addition of 1500 unique, peer-reviewed electronic titles to our collection (this is Elsevier content so there is no overlap with our other electronic holdings).
The database is available on the library’s web site under Articles and E-Journals http://www.kutztown.edu/library/information/articles.asp linked under the alphabetical list and the Health, Biology, Enviro Sci, Sciences, Chemistry, and Geography subject lists.
The direct vendor url is: http://www.sciencedirect.com/college/search
Please note that this search engine allows you to search all College Editions’ collections so not everything will be full-text (full-text will be noted). Another bonus is that we have abstracting for all the Science Direct College Edition content.
To search only the full text articles, change All Journals to Subscribed Journals in the Source search box.
Please note: off-campus access is available but you have to email me for a user id/password and instructions.
This database was purchased with student technology fees.
Watch for upcoming training events for this new database from the library.
