Electronic journals at year-end

Electronic journal subscriptions are prone to having access terminated at the end of each year. Please note that the McGill Library has renewed all of its online subscriptions and it is our hope that our publishers will minimize the disruption of electronic access. Should problems arise in January we will make every effort to reinstate access as quickly as possible. Please report any access problems to collections [dot] library [at] mcgill [dot] ca.
