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.

The Library is Back on Delicious

If you frequent the library's website, you may have noticed this fall that the library's account disappeared from the bookmarking social media service Delicious. The library's account was lost when Delicious changed its Web host several months ago. We are pleased to announce that the library's account is once again alive and well. Union College librarians are busy rebuilding the list of useful links.

Finding Full-text Articles Just Became Easier

If you are a frequent user of the library's article databases, you may have noticed that the Periodicals A to Z link has been changed to Find Article @ Union College. This change was made because the library has added an open URL link resolver. Link resolvers are tools which allow linking from one individual article record in a database to the full-text document in another database.
