Libraries spring 2005 resource workshops for ScienceDirect

The Libraries invite you to learn how to save time, and find the information you need, using the online electronic resource ScienceDirect. Kimberly Hall, a professional trainer from Elsevier Science, will lead free workshops at Rutgers for faculty and students on how to use this resource most effectively.

ScienceDirect, the electronic science journal package from Elsevier Science, provides access to more than 1,000 periodicals (over 1,100,000 articles) from 1995 to present. Included in ScienceDirect's holdings are the following fields: Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Materials Science, Engineering and Technology, Environmental Science, Economics, Business and Management Science, Neuroscience, Pharmacology and Toxicology, Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science, Earth Sciences, Social Sciences, Biochemistry, Microbiology and Immunology, and Clinical Medicine. The full-text/full-image articles (PDF version) are available from any Rutgers workstation as well as to remote users registered as Rutgers faculty, staff, or students.

The Libraries acquired ScienceDirect as another step in the implementation of A Bridge To The Future: The Rutgers Digital Library Initiative, the Libraries long-range plan. Users may access ScienceDirect from the front page of the Libraries website ("") through IRIS or by following the path Find Articles/ Indexes and Databases / (scroll down alphabetical list)/ ScienceDirect.

Seating is limited and a minimum of 20 attendees is requested for each session. To register, please call Libraries Administration at 732/932-7505 or send email to
