The New York Public Library's Science, Industry, and Business Library (SIBL) and global publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc. have joined in a new venture that provides Library users broad, public online access to over 300 peer-reviewed journals that until now have been available principally through academic or corporate collections.
For the first time at each of the Library's four research libraries--SIBL, Humanities and Social Science Library, Library for the Performing Arts, and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture--users will be able to electronically access the full-text of journal articles online via Wiley InterScience, Wiley's online publishing platform, as soon as they are published. Journals featured in this program span the sciences with titles such as Advanced Engineering Materials, American Journal of Physical Anthropology, Cancer, Flavor and Fragrance, Journal of Field Robotics, and International Journal of Imaging Systems & Technology. A full alphabetical list of the titles included in the pilot can be found at http://www.nypl.org/research/sibl/docs/wileyjournals.pdf.
