Elsevier Purchase Expands OhioLINK Journal Offerings by 3.4 Million Articles
December 22, 2010
COLUMBUS, OH – Ohio’s college students and researchers will now have access to more than 3.4 million additional articles from Elsevier, a highly regarded publisher in the fields of science and engineering with titles including “The Lancet” and “Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology and Medicine.” Though OhioLINK member libraries have had access to nearly 2,400 Elsevier journals previously, this collection includes historic backfiles, allowing Ohio’s academic community to search for and cite past works and knowledge.
The acquisition of these backfiles has been a top priority for OhioLINK over the last threeyears, culminating in the state Controlling Board’s November 22, 2010, approval of purchase. The deal was officially finished today.
“This purchase speaks to the hard work and dedication of the OhioLINK community,” says Eric Fingerhut, Chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents. “When it became clear these materials would help accelerate science and engineering research throughout the state, the community came together to put the resources in the hands of the students and faculty who need them.”
OhioLINK is a consortium of 89 Ohio colleges and university libraries and the State Library of Ohio, working to bring books, articles, electronic resources and digitalinformation to more than 600,000 students, faculty, and staff across the Buckeye State. Users have access to more than 48 million library items, 12,000 electronic journals and 140 electronic research databases, available 24/7 through their university libraries or online at www.ohiolink.edu.
