The Library invites you to attend a Scopus training session scheduled for Wednesday, May 12th. Please join us for a presentation offered by Elsevier representatives who will discuss searching the abstract and citation database that covers over 18,000 peer-reviewed journal titles from more than 5,000 international publishers, patents, digital archives, millions of scientific web pages and thousands of “Articles-in-Press”. The trainer will also cover Scopus features that include the Citation Tracker, Journal Analyzer and the SNIP and SJR value metrics.
For your convenience we have scheduled two sessions:
9:30am – 11:00am — Sacramento Medical Center – Education Building — Room 2205
1:30pm – 3:00pm — UC Davis campus – Shields Library — Library Instruction Lab
The University of California has trial access to Scopus through December 2010.
For more information about Scopus, please contact your library subject specialist or department heads Karen Andrews (Physical Sciences & Engineering Library, email@example.com; Keir Reavie (Biological & Agricultural Sciences/Health Sciences Libraries), firstname.lastname@example.org; Myra Appel (Humanities, Social Sciences & Government Information Services Department), email@example.com.

Previously reported access problems for Wiley journals appear to be resolved (as of Wednesday, 5/5/10).
Currently, UC campuses are experiencing problems accessing the 2010 online content (cover dates March 2010 forward) of the Wiley InterScience journals. The CDL (California Digital Library) has reported the problem and the Wiley InterScience technical support staff are investigating. At the present time, there is not an estimated time for resolution.
In the meantime, if you need a specific Wiley article, please contact the Physical Sciences & Engineering Library librarians at firstname.lastname@example.org (or come into the library) with the article citation and we will try to get the article for you. We hope to have access restored very soon!
