This blog will post useful information about how to get access to the fulltext of scientific publications,

  • for the general public (without connection to libraries with subscriptions)
  • for libraries to create awareness on tools offered by the library to their patrons
  • for the patrons of libraries that like to use tools outside the library

It all started with the threat of losing access to a major publisher…

because the publisher is either asking too much extra fee, or the publisher is refusing to change to open access publishing…
