ScienceDirect, one of the most advanced Web delivery systems available for scientific, technical and medical information, has now been added to the National Library of Scotland's Electronic Resources Network.
As one of the world's largest databases covering these areas, ScienceDirect contains more than 1700 titles from Elsevier Science, providing research journals, abstract databases and reference works, and featuring publications such as The Lancet. Subjects range from brain research to accounting, with some arts and humanities included.
All titles can be viewed at the dedicated ERN workstations in the George IV Bridge Building during 2003. From next year, the Library's subscription to ScienceDirect will be based on subject collections covering specific disciplines, determined by the level of use of each title this year.
