hallelujahFinally, access to the Wiley Interscience 2010 issues has been turned on.

Thank you –especially to those in the Life Sciences who were most affected by this delay– for your patience.

For a review of the issues behind this delay, please see the earlier post.

If you encounter any problems, please email using our eResources help form.

*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!

a place of mind, The University of British Columbia
