The following Elsevier/ScienceDirect perpetual-access backfile packages were recently purchased and activated for WUSTL users: Materials Science, Neuroscience, Neuroscience Supplement, Chemical Engineering, Engineering and Technology, Agricultural and Biological Sciences, Agricultural and Biological Sciences Supplement, Computer Science, Computer Science Supplement, Decision Sciences, Energy and Power, Mathematics, Mathematics Supplement, Social Sciences, Social Sciences Supplement. In case you are curious, the "supplement" lists tend to be the formerly-Academic-Press titles. [We had previously purchased several other Elsevier backfiles including Cell Press, Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology Supplement, Economics, Econometrics and Finance, Economics, Econometrics and Finance Supplement, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Earth and Planetary Sciences Supplement, Environmental Science, Environmental Science Supplement, Psychology, Psychology Supplement.] For many titles we now have fulltext online v.1-present. For others where we do not have current subscriptions, our holdings might be v.1-1994. A complete list of titles and years included in each backfile package is available http://www.info.sciverse.com/sciencedirect/content/journals/titles; scroll half-way down the page to BACKFILES for the contents lists.

Although a plan hasn't been announced yet, I'm sure the next step will be to take any paper volumes, which are now available fulltext online from the backfile purchases, out of circulation from Olin Library and eventually from West Campus and Departmental Libraries. This is because

--we are running out of stack space,

--this purchased content is dependable (archived in Portico should something happen to Elsevier and a perpetual access purchase even if we were to cancel our current subscription),

--and we have other potential uses for library spaces.

If there is some reason why specific paper volumes must be kept, please discuss with Ruth Lewis. I've listed holdings changes from Mathematics and Mathematics Supplement below.
