Library Gains Access
to 300 Online Wiley Journals

JACKSONVILLE -- May 16, 2001 -- The Network of Alabama Academic Libraries (NAAL) has reached a historic agreement with publisher, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. to add Wiley Interscience to the online resources available to Alabama's students and faculty. Jacksonville State University has joined the list of Alabama colleges and universities participating in this agreement.

This database provides greatly enhanced access to the highly valued research published by John Wiley & Sons in the fields of business, finance, management chemistry, computer science, education, engineering, life science, medical science, mathematics statistics, physics and psychology. With this agreement, Alabama students, faculty and other researchers can search over 145,000 online journal articles contained in more than 334 journals published by Wiley.

The following is a list of other colleges and universities participating in the agreement:

  • Alabama A&M University
  • Troy State University Dothan
  • Alabama State University
  • Troy State University Montgomery
  • Auburn University
  • University of Alabama
  • Birmingham Southern College
  • University of Alabama at Birmingham
  • Faulkner University
  • University of Alabama in Huntsville
  • Huntingdon College
  • University of Mobile
  • Samford University
  • University of North Alabama
  • Spring Hill College
  • University of South Alabama
  • Troy State University - Troy
  • University of West Alabama

Also participating in this historic partnership are NAAL cooperative members, Air University Library at Maxwell Air Force Base (Montgomery), and Redstone (Arsenal) Scientific Information Center (Huntsville), along with the University of Georgia, Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia State University, Emory University and Medical College of Georgia. Acting alone, Alabama academic libraries would have qualified for online access to only about one-half of the Wiley titles, those represented by at least one print journal subscription within NAAL membership. By joining with libraries in Georgia, both groups qualified for access to all 300+ online titles in Wiley Interscience.

By facilitating sharing of academic library resources, NAAL supports the efficient, effective use of Alabama's limited funds for higher education. NAAL was established in 1984 by the presidents of Alabama's academic institutions and the Alabama Commission on Higher Education to coordinate a statewide program to strengthen and share library resources supporting graduate education and research.
