New Resources Available

a. Nature

CDL is now providing access to Nature, the Nature Research journals, and the Nature Reviews journals for all UC users.  For over 130 years Nature has been one of the pre-eminent scientific journals; the CDL is especially pleased that we have finally reached closure on this license.  The decision to license Nature was a long one, involving negotiation regarding such issues as price, coverage, and perpetual access.  In the end, due to intense interest on the part of the campuses, the CDL agreed to a license without perpetual access.  We will continue to work on ways to provide the necessary continuity for these important titles.

Included in the package are:
Nature Biotechnology
Nature Cell Biology
Nature Genetics
Nature Immunology
Nature Medicine
Nature Neuroscience
Nature Structural Biology
Nature Reviews. Genetics
Nature Reviews. Molecular Cell Biology
Nature Reviews. Neuroscience
Nature Reviews. Cancer
