Last summer, the Dalhousie Libraries made changes to journal and database subscriptions in order to achieve a balanced collections budget. As a result, some subscriptions were cancelled. In the majority of cases, subscriptions were moved to a more economical delivery format, or an Open Access option was available. In a few cases duplicated content was dropped.
When a subscription for an electronic journal expires, the link is removed from the catalogue if we no longer have access to any of the content. In some instances, our access to older content that has been paid for over the life of the subscription will remain, though we will not be able access more recent content.
If you are having trouble accessing a journal that was available in the recent past or has been bookmarked or accessed through a Table of Contents alerting service, please consult the Novanet catalogue or the eJournals list. This will confirm whether or not we still have an active subscription. If the journal is still part of an active subscription, please report the problem to Library.Eresources@Dal.ca.
If you require content from a journal that we no longer subscribe to, you can place a request for specific articles through Document Delivery: https://libraries.dal.ca/locations_services/services/document_deliveryservices.html
Lists of changed subscriptions are posted on the Dalhousie Libraries collections page: (http://libraries.dal.ca/collection.html)
If you are unable to confirm that the journal you need was cancelled and require assistance resolving an access problem, please contact:Library.Eresources@Dal.Ca
