Library Increases Access to Online Journals

The Library is taking steps to increase access to online journals at Union College. Starting this spring semester, approximately sixty print journals will be moved to online access only. Following a new policy, the library will subscribe to online rather than print editions of journals when the online option is both less expensive and offers IP authentication. This means that when readers access journals from a campus computer, no usernames or passwords are necessary. Students and faculty will still need to log in to Union College’s proxy server using their UC ID and password when off campus. Journals which offer online access with passwords only will either remain as print subscriptions or be discontinued altogether if a print option is not available.

In addition, the library is subscribing to a new American Chemical Society package which increases the number of chemistry journals available from five to fifteen. Titles such as Langmuir, Environmental Service and Technology, and the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry are a few of the new journals offered online.

While all of these online journals allow access to articles published as far back as the 1990s, their main focus is on current content. Beginning publication dates for the available articles varies by journal title and publisher.

A partial list of the new journals offered online is available below. More titles will be available soon.
