"Changes are largely positive with many more new subscriptions added than old ones cancelled," said Nancy Woelfl, Ph.D., director of the McGoogan Library of Medicine.
She attributed the positive developments to:
- The UNMC and University of Nebraska-Lincoln libraries joining forces to negotiate an advantageous, multi-year contract with Elsevier/Science Direct.
- A number of UNMC partners providing support for subscriptions and databases to the benefit of the entire UNMC community. (See sidebar on the right.)
Also, UNMC and UNL now can share their Elsevier titles, which means UNL faculty, staff and students can access UNMC's roughly 160 licensed titles and medical center users can access more than 400 titles licensed by UNL.
Questions regarding cancellations or additions should be directed to Mary Helms, associate director for library resources and technology, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 559-7099.
