Question

Q: Why is our Elsevier contract being canceled?

Answer

As you might know, the KSU Library System has canceled its subscription for the Elsevier ScienceDirect Freedom Collection. We have been priced out of the market. The cancelation will become effective after December 31, 2018. This does not include our other Elsevier database, Scopus.

We have more information on our website regarding supplemental material and resources for faculty, staff, and students to use to substitute what Elsevier provided. Our librarians have compiled a list of the titles affected and recommended alternative sources for some titles, available at the link below.

If you have any questions about this cancelation, please contact Dr. David Evans, Dean of Library Services.
