Public Libraries Get Online Access To Research Journals

Posted at 12:48PM Monday 03 Feb 2014

Hundreds of thousands of research journal articles are to be made available on computers in public libraries.

The Access to Research initiative will give the public access to articles on health, biological research, engineering and social sciences for the first time.

More than 8,000 journals from around the world are included.

It is hoped this will encourage more people to use public libraries.

The Publishing Licensing Society (PLS) is behind the scheme.

It ensures publishers are paid for the copying of extracts of their publications, including digital copies.

Several major publishers have signed up to Access to Research, meaning their material will be available free, but only when viewed by computer terminals in public libraries.
