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The titles in these packages collectively best represent our current Elsevier paper journals which will be withdrawn from the collection.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:

WorldCat Local: Another way to search for books, articles and more

WorldCat Local is a discovery tool that allows you to search for books, journals, magazines, newspapers, videos and DVDs, and musical recordings and scores available at the Mount Allison Libraries and at Libraries around the world.

Though not a replacement for the Library Catalogue (which will continue to offer search functionality not available in WorldCat), this new tool offers new features such as simultaneous book and article searching (searching some, but not all, library databases).

Please note that WorldCat Local does not provide access to all ebooks or to all of the online content (such as online government publications) accessible through the library catalogue.
