WKU Libraries offers several new electronic journal packages that allow access to impressive numbers of titles for existing or fewer dollars.
Just activated are the following: (1) ACM Digital Library, accessed through ACM Portal. A collection of 19 journals and magazines, 26 transactions, over 85 conference proceedings, SIG newsletters, and the ACM Online Guide to Computing Literature; (2) IEEE Computer Society Magazine Package, providing access to 14 journals (whereas previously we subscribed to 7) and backfiles to 1988. This is a subset of the IEEE Digital Library; and (3) SpringerLink consortial arrangement through ESIG (EPSCoR Scientific Information Group) that gives users access to over 1,200 Springer titles and subsidiary companies, but we pay only for our current titles. 33 titles = 1,200+ titles. Not bad! and many disciplines are covered, such as economics, marketing, psychology, educational leadership, sociology, mathematics.
Additionally, we are adding individual online titles for public health and nursing. Check with your library liaison for more information; search TOPCAT for titles and links or TDNet, our online e-journal management system.
