Journal Transformation

Posted in Announcements

wireless quadrangleIn recent years, LSU Libraries has purchased electronic backfiles of journals from major publishers Elsevier, Springer, Wiley, and the American Chemical Society, providing wider, 24/7 access to scientific literature, filling in missing and damaged journal issues, and freeing up physical space in Middleton Library.

As a result of these purchases, carefully selected print versions of some journal titles can be removed from Middleton Library. The FAQ webpage about the project describes in detail what kinds of journals have changed to electronic-only, and the process for keeping the university community informed. Some journals, such as popular magazines, local/regional publications, image-intensive journals, or journals that lack adequate preservation, are important to keep in paper format, and will not be removed.

LSU Libraries is working closely with the Campus Sustainability Initiative to recycle the paper versions of the titles in an environment-friendly way.

Questions or comments that are not covered by the FAQ webpage can be directed to either Tom Diamond, Head of Collection Development, or Stanley Wilder, Dean of Libraries.

Sigrid Kelsey is the Director of Library Communications and Publications at the LSU Libraries.
