The Canadian National Site Licensing Project (CNSLP) has successfully negotiated a license agreement with the publisher Elsevier. The license provides access to more than 1,500 full-text journals through Elsevier’s ScienceDirect platform. Please see the attached press release.
While UNB Libraries were already providing electronic access to the Elsevier titles, the national deal means a substantial savings to UNB in 2002/2003. It also provides access to approximately 150 Harcourt Health journals that UNB did not previously license. [Harcourt Health journals are curently only available to on-campus users directly from the ScienceDirect website under journals.]
This is an important achievement on the part of CNSLP and one that benefits 61 participating universities across the country.
