The Libraries acquired ScienceDirect through the generous support of the Reinvest in Rutgers program. Securing this resource is another step in the implementation of A Bridge To The Future: The Rutgers Digital Library Initiative, the Libraries long-range plan. The Rutgers University Libraries joined 16 other members of the NorthEast Research Libraries Consortium (NERL) to acquire electronic access to 1,028 unique Elsevier journal titles through ScienceDirect. Users may access ScienceDirect from the front page of the Libraries website ( through Library Catalog or by following the path Indexes / Multidisciplinary / Journals.
