Recently, a student asked for the ScienceDirect login at the Armstrong circ desk. This question is asked frequently, so please be sure you know how to answer it. Here’s what to do:
1. Search for the journal title (not the article title) at http://go.middlebury.edu/journals. This will tell you what issues, if any, we own of a journal. In some cases, we might own issues of a ScienceDirect journal in print or through a source other than ScienceDirect.
2. If we don’t own the article, search NExpress at http://go.middlebury.edu/nexpress
3. If no NExpress libraries own the article then you can recommend the student request the article at http://go.middlebury.edu/illiad
These instructions also can be found in the Sciences research guide.
As always, if someone asks you a resource-related question that you’re not able to answer and I’m not in my office, please leave me a note. Because a circ student left me a note, I was able to help the student get his article from NExpress.
