The Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA) recently announced a new license agreement with the American Chemical Society allowing for online access to 30 core chemistry journals. The agreement will provide researchers in Virginia with unprecedented access to information from ACS, the leading American publisher of chemical information.

The new ACS free search page supports basic author, title and keyword searching across multiple ACS journals. By using the ACS Web Subscriber Search, researchers have direct access to homepages of specific ACS journals and can browse a list of article from current and back issues. Journal articles are available in PDF and HTML formats.

The new system also features As Soon As Publishable (ASAP) alerts, which allow researchers to view Web versions of research articles accepted by ACS two to three weeks before their print publication is available.

VIVA, which is sponsored by the State Council of Higher Education, is the consortium of the libraries of 29 state-assisted colleges and universities in Virginia.

For more information, contact Katherine A. Perry, VIVA director, at (703) 993-4652 or kperry@gmu.edu.
