New resource: Science Classic from the AAAS

Following the signing of a national license agreement between AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) and Jisc, access to the Science Classic collection has been enabled in Library OneSearch and SFX.

Access is direct on-campus, and it is hoped to be able to activate off-campus access shortly.

The Science Classic collection provides access to the full-text archive of Science [0036-8075] (1880 to 1996) on the platform, which is presented as a series of high-resolution PDFs. A new listing for the access to this title on has been created in SFX.

A new database entry for Science Classic has also been created in Library OneSearch, which is described as follows:

Access to the full-text (and PDF reproduction) of the archive of Science [0036-8075] from 1880 to 1996; plus abstract, summary and back-issue material for a range of publications of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS); Science Online supporting material, including pod casts, videos, and interactive content; the service; and ScienceNOW stories published within the previous four weeks.
