*UPDATE* Wiley 2010 issues now accessible!

WileyEven though we are well into the new year, you’ve noticed that you can’t access 2010 issues of Wiley ejournals. You’re frustrated. We, in eResources, are frustrated.

UBC Library is part of a consortium of libraries (called CRKN) which negotiates our access to Wiley InterScience. A Wiley policy prevents 2010 access until certain steps are completed by CRKN. We hope this will happen soon, and we apologize for the delay.

In the meanwhile, access to our currently subscribed Wiley titles (for 2009 and earlier issues) should be problem free. If you have problems accessing a journal, please contact us here.

To get a copy of a 2010 article, InterLibrary Loan will try to help – but there are no guarantees. The ILL form is here, please add in the Note’s field on the request that UBC access isn’t active yet.

We will let you know when (soon!) 2010 access has been granted. Watch this blog for updates!

informaHealthLife Sciences folk: please take note.

A number of online medical journals are moving from the InformaWorld platform to the new Informa Healthcare site. We have adjusted our ejournal A-Z list to add the new Informa Healthcare links (starting January 15th.), but some old InformaWorld links will persist for a short time. If you see both links, please choose the Informa Healthcare link. The same goes for links listed by our OpenURL resolverelinkicon

Many fine titles in other disciplines are staying with InformaWorld and will not be affected by this move.

If you have any questions or encounter any problems, please contact your eResources team here.
