At the end of 2018, the contract between the acquisition consortium of Saxon university libraries and the publisher Elsevier for the purchase of journals expired. In consultation with the rectorate of the TU Dresden, the SLUB, like numerous other institutions in Germany, decided not to renew the Elsevier licences for reasons of science policy. We informed about the particular difficulties with the major publisher Elsevier in this letter. The supply of our users with articles from Elsevier journals is still guaranteed.
The SLUB holds the archiving rights for some Elsevier journals until 31 December 2015 and they are still accessible via ScienceDirect.
Newer literature from Elsevier journals can be obtained free of charge via our interlibrary loan portal. The delivery time for interlibrary loan orders is generally one to two weeks. We can provide Elsevier articles from e-only journals much faster. For orders that can be served from print journals and are more than 20 pages in length, you will be charged. Details on the interlibrary loan procedure can be found on our interlibrary loan website.
