I'm pleased to announce that we now have access to the full runs of three new titles that had been requested:

As usual, these can be accessed through these links, through the Journals search tab on the library website, or through the Grad Center's Google Scholar link. Please let me know if you have any questions, or have any additional title requests. 

The ASRC and CUNY Grad Center can now access the full texts of two new journals. We now have access to Science Signaling from 2008 to the present, and Science Translational Medicine from 2009 to the present.

You can access this new journal package through the link below, through the Journals and Databases tab on this guide, or through the library homepage.
