The library was forced to cancel its subscription to Web of Science at the end of 2007 because of budget shortfalls. However, the office of the Vice Chancellor for Research has generously agreed to make up for the shortage and allow the University to continue its subscription under the same terms as had previously been negotiated. Web of Science access is available through the library home page ‘Quick Links’ at http://www.unmc.edu/library.
