Trial access to all journals of the Nature Publishing Group
As of today users of Lib4RI have free access to all journals of the Nature Publishing Group (NPG) until the end of 2011. These include in total 110 titles, particularly from Life Sciences, Medicine, Chemistry, Earth Sciences and Physics. You can find a list of these journals on the website of the NPG.
The directorates of the four research institutes initiated a survey to identify the most important scientific journals. From September 2010 to March 2011 members of Eawag, Empa, PSI and WSL were asked to name the five most important journals for their work in an online survey.
Over the course of the last few months, we have been busily working to create the website you’re now looking at. Launched on March 24, the new website serves as Lib4RI’s virtual branch, replacing and unifying the websites of Lib4RI’s founding libraries.
New Resources – Extensions as a result of the merger
Information resources which until now have been available at one of the four research institutes are now available at all four institutions. That amounts to a substantially improved range of resources for all users. All of our databases and journals can be found on our website (see Resources > Databases and Resources > Journals).
Opening of Lib4RI, the new joint library of Eawag, Empa, PSI and WSL
You are cordially invited to celebrate with us the opening of Lib4RI, which will take place at the main sites of the library on 10 February 2011! The libraries of Eawag, Empa, PSI and WSL merged on 1st January.
