Changes to paper journal collection

Message from NICE EvidenceDSCF0274

NICE and Elsevier have announced that access to The Lancet (electronic) will continue to be made available for a further 12 months (1 January 2015 – 31 December 2015).

In order to secure equitable access to The Lancet we have had to negotiate the removal of access to the print version of the journal.

You will no longer receive a print copy of the Lancet from 1 January 2015.

The Staff Library will however, still be accepting those paper journals which we receive as donations, including HSJ.
