Backfile Content Acquired for 1200 Elsevier Journals
Beginning January 1, 2014 Mount Allison students, faculty, and staff have access to the archival contents of approximately 1,200 Elsevier journal titles in the sciences, social sciences, and arts and humanities. The purchase includes thirteen subject packages: Agricultural and Biological Sciences; Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology; Earth and Planetary Sciences; Engineering and Technology; High Energy/Nuclear Physics and Astronomy; Materials Science; Medicine and Dentistry; Neuroscience; Pharmacology, Toxicology and Pharmaceutics; Physical and Analytical Chemistry; Physics General; Psychology; Social Science; and 61 individual titles.
The titles in these packages collectively best represent our current Elsevier paper journals which will be withdrawn from the collection. These titles also include many of 11,700 articles MTA students and faculty requested between January 1, 2012 and October 31, 2013 but which could not be accessed online because they fell outside our old Elsevier licence.
A consolidated list of titles is available. The URL associated with each title can be used to access the title directly from on or off campus. If asked, enter your MTA username and password. Access is restricted to current MTA users.
Off-Campus Access to Library Databases and Digital Materials
Most library databases and digital materials, including e-books, may be accessed from off-campus:
