The American Mathematical Society has implemented Mobile Pairing for all of its electronic products - MathSciNet, eJournals and eBooks. More information at http://www.ams.org/publications/mobilepairing. Mobile Pairing allows authorized users to 'pair' their mobile devices - tablets, laptops, smartphones - with WU's subscriptions/electronic purchases. Once 'paired', the user will have access to AMS electronic products without having to be connected to the host institution's network. The pairing will last for 90 days.
Have you signed the White House petition to require free access over the Internet to scientific journal articles arising from taxpayer-funded research? If you haven't, please consider it and do it before June 19th. More information with a link to the petition is available at http://access2research.org/Petition. Timothy Gowers blogged about this last week: http://gowers.wordpress.com/2012/05/24/have-you-signed-the-open-access-petition/. Signing this petition will take a few minutes because you first need to create an account at whitehouse.gov. Thank you for considering this. NOTE: Goal of 25,000 signatures was reached on June 3rd!
