UC's Elsevier Update

On March 16, UC announced an agreement with Elsevier. We have not had access to new content in Elsevier journals since January 2019. The deal, which starts April 1, re-establishes access to articles published in Elsevier journals the libraries subscribed to before, plus additional journals. In addition, the four-year deal will also provide for open access publishing of UC research in nearly 2,300 Elsevier journals from day one.

Details are available in the UCB Library News, and the UC Press Room.
