What is happening to the databases ScienceDirect Complimentary Free Access Books and ScienceDirect Open Access?
Ex Libris currently has title-level information for the ScienceDirect Complimentary Free Access Books and ScienceDirect Open Access Titles from provider Elsevier in the Knowledgebase. These collections were created by Ex Libris based on the general ScienceDirect collections but unfortunately they do not reflect the status of the OA titles in ScienceDircetl accurately enough. Elsevier themselves do not provide dedicated title lists for their Open Access content. To access Elsevier ScienceDirect Open Access titles please select the relevant items in their global collections.
The databases ScienceDirect Complimentary Free Access Books and ScienceDirect Open Access Titles from the provider Elsevier are no longer being updated.
