Elsevier expands ScienceDirect College Edition

November 26, 2007

Amsterdam, 26 November 2007 - Elsevier, a leading scientific and healthcare publisher announced today that their license for two- and four-year colleges, ScienceDirect College Edition, will be expanded to include content going back to 1995 at no additional cost to the customer. The expansion, which will take effect January 2008, means colleges will have access to more content of high-quality journals and reference works to enhance teaching and learning.

Before the content expansion colleges had access to 4 years of content. With the expansion, students and faculty will be able to access content from 1995 to present day which means access to almost two million full-text articles across 1,850 journals.

"We decided all customers should have access to the same content years - regardless of when they started, enabling them to access quality information covering more than a decade of science," explains Andrea Schweikert, Director, Global Accounts. "The expansion is all about the relationship we've worked so hard to develop with our customers."

"The decision to expand content back to 1995 enhances access for current colleges, makes the offer even more compelling for new colleges and demonstrates Elsevier's commitment to meeting the needs of this specific market segment," explains Rochelle Gore, Director of Sales, Global Accounts North America.

According to Dorit Lange, Head of Marketing Global Accounts, the response to the news that the content will be expanded has been overwhelmingly positive. "Several library directors have sent us emails applauding the decision to expand the content."
