Elsevier Agreement Expands Access to Scholarly Materials

Recently UIUC, UIS and UIC renegotiated our contract for Elsevier journals so that if any one of us holds a print subscription to an Elsevier title, we all will have e-access to the titles. While we've had this in the recent past, too, the formal negotiation between the campuses has solidified our continued access to the Elsevier medical titles that UIC has. It also resulted in a savings of about $400,000 to UIUC, since we were able to cancel the print version for many of our Elsevier journals, while maintaining e-access to them. For more information on this, please see the statement written by Karen Schmidt, the Director of Library Collections.
