Miss Browsing Math Reviews?

You can continue to browse MR records by MSC classification on a regular basis by using MathSciNet’s Current Publications alerting tool.

http://www.ams.org/mathscinet/CurrentPublications.html

MathSciNet has a set of Free Tools (see buttons upper right on MSN page) that give you more browsing abilites.  Choose the Current Publications tab, then This Month, and Reviewed to see reviewed entries only.  New entries are added during the month, so if you check on a weekly basis, you’ll see the newer entries at the top.

Note that if you chose This Month on the first few days of a month, there will be few or no entries.

This information and more can be found in the Keeping Current section on our new books and our new journals pages.

Changes to Elsevier ScienceDirect Access

Last week the Libraries began to offer substantially increased access to journal content from Elsevier as a result of a lengthy, complex and successful renegotiation process that took place over several months. The new agreement includes a commitment by the Libraries to purchase Elsevier’s complete 1500 title back-file collection over 5 years at a substantially reduced price, and access without charge for 2010 to all current journals within its “Freedom Collection.” The back-file purchase is part of the Libraries’ longstanding strategic pursuit of the Anytime Anyplace Library concept and helps address a need that many UW faculty have expressed in recent surveys. The Freedom Collection increases the number of current Elsevier journals available to UW users from roughly 1,000 to 2,000 and provides an opportunity to assess its overall value and demand for specific titles. Catalog and e-journal list entries should be updated by mid-February.
