Serials Solutions, a member of ProQuest Information and Learning, has introduced two initiatives to provide greater value to libraries. AARP and ProQuest Information and Learning have also announced the addition of doctoral dissertations to AARP's AgeLine Database.
Serials Solutions will hold its 2004 price schedule in place through calendar year 2005, with no increases to the schedule. Second, the company will offer additional licensing alternatives in an effort to provide greater flexibility to libraries. Both of these options permit libraries to lock in their service price for a longer period of time. Serials Solutions provides ejournal access services to libraries worldwide. Founded by a librarian for librarians, Serials Solutions aims to help librarians and patrons find and use electronic content through E-Journal A.M.S., Full MARC Records service for ejournals, and Article Linker, Serials Solutions' OpenURL link resolver.
AARP and ProQuest Information and Learning have added doctoral dissertations to AARP's AgeLine Database on aging-related research, policy, and practice. The dissertation content comes from Dissertation Abstracts International and includes gerontology and aging-related content from psychology, social work, economics, sociology, political science, health sciences, and other disciplines, from 1999 to the present. AARP is a non-profit, non-partisan membership organization dedicated to making life better for people 50 and over. AgeLine is a database focusing exclusively on research, policy, and practice affecting the 50+ population, and includes abstracts of over 600 journals as well as books, chapters, reports, videos, dissertations, and selected consumer content. AgeLine is produced by AARP's Research Information Center and can be searched free on the AARP Web site or through third-party providers.
