HEAL-Link's 57 members are comprised of all academic and research institutions across Greece, as well as the University of Cyprus. HEAL-Link members will have full text access to over 7,500 journal titles available from 14 publishers, who now include American Chemical Society, American Institute of Physics, American Physical Society, Association for Computing Machinery, Blackwell Publishing, Institute of Physics, John Wiley, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Oxford University Press, and Taylor & Francis. Among the other STM publishers already participating with HEAL-Link, and negotiated with the aid of Swets Blackwell, are Elsevier, Kluwer Academic Publishers, MCB, and Springer. In addition, HEAL-Link has agreements for OCLC FirstSearch and Wilson OmniFile Full Text Mega.
