Elsevier changes

On Tuesday, April 23, 2019 the LSU Faculty Senate voted to approve Resolution 19-05, recommending the cancellation of the LSU Libraries’ subscription to its bundle of Elsevier journals and adoption of a subscription model that will involve subscribing to titles in an à la carte manner, narrowing Elsevier journal subscriptions to journals that are the most appropriate for LSU’s needs. The changes will take place in January 2020.  Access to the canceled content will be available in the following ways:

Interlibrary Loan
Interlibrary Loan will be able to provide access to the canceled journal articles in about 24 hours.

Expedited article delivery
The Libraries will offer a new expedited delivery service to faculty and graduate students. Expedited articles will arrive in about 2 hours and all journal articles from the canceled "big deal" subscription will qualify. The Libraries will be charged a per article fee and asks that the service be used only when necessary.

Open access
Open access versions of articles are often available and discoverable through Google Scholar or through open access browser plugins and extensions like Open Access Button and Unpaywall

Direct from the author
Most publishers allow authors to share their own work. Authors can be contacted directly and may be found through research-oriented social networking sites such as Academia.eduMendeley, and HumanitiesCommons.
