How Much Do Universities Really Pay for Journals?

journal price plot
A new study in PNAS evaluated the secret license agreements of many large universities and the prices they paid in 2009 for large bundles of publisher-based journals. The results, while dated and somewhat confusing, show that price disparity is very significant depending on a library's ability to negotiate the "big deals." But the devil as always is in the details, and it is tremendously difficult to make direct comparisons across institutions. A piece in Science explains further. [6/20/14]

CSD 2014 Software Available

The 2014 version of the Cambridge Structural Database software package is available for checkout and on-campus installation. Ask for the DVD box at the service desk. [4/20/14]

New Journals: ACS Photonics and Environmental Science: Nano

ACS and RSC have launched yet more new journals in 2014. [2/8/14]

New Scanning Station

The Chemistry Library now has a "KIC" scanning station, located in the copier alcove in the center of the library. You can make free scans of anything using the book-friendly platform and a high-resolution overhead camera. No more waiting for a flatbed scanner at one of our always-occupied workstations! Instructions for use are here. NOTE: Until we get a new network connection installed, the station only saves to a USB drive. Email and print options will come soon. [1/14/14]
