From Myrin Library’s Collections: New Resources are in Bloom this Spring!
Myrin Library’s new resources are in bloom this spring! Check them out!
American Chemical Society – Open Access Read and Publish Agreement
Access to the American Chemical Society’s 75 e-journals and 39 archival e-journals is not new, but the Read and Publish Agreement is! This means that Ursinus College faculty can now publish open access articles as corresponding authors in American Chemical Society journals and have their article processing fees waived. This new 2-year deal, beginning in 2023, is made possible through one of Myrin Library’s consortia: PALCI.
Cambridge University Press Journals - Database plus Open Access Read and Publish Agreement
Myrin Library used to have access to only 11 Cambridge University Press journals. Beginning in 2023, with this new 3-year read and publish agreement, Myrin Library now has access to 408 journals. In addition, Ursinus College faculty can now publish open access articles as corresponding authors in Cambridge University Press journals and have their author processing fees waived. This transformative agreement, otherwise known as “Read and Publish” is made possible through another one of Myrin Library’s consortia: LYRASIS. This is Myrin Library’s first Read and Publish agreement with a journal publisher who publishes journals in the humanities and social science disciplines.

New York Times (Digital Access)
Ursinus faculty, staff, and current students now have direct digital access to the New York Times at nytimes.com. Access includes articles from the paper’s founding in 1851 through the present, as well as video footage and live events. Users must first create a personal account with their Ursinus e-mail address to be able to access nytimes.com. An e-mail message to the Ursinus community with more details about this brand-new resource is coming very soon. New York Times (Digital Access) was acquired via Myrin Library’s consortium LYRASIS.
Except for Cambridge University Press Journals, which can be found in Myrin Library’s OneSearch, or directly on the Cambridge University Press Journals website, the new acquisitions mentioned above are found on Myrin Library’s Databases A-Z page.
