- WU Library has subscribed to Digizeitschriften which includes mostly backfiles of German research journals. Citations and some content were freely available without our subscription but now we have the whole research service including fulltext; additions to Digizeitschriften are ongoing.
Early each calendar year, ejournal access problems sometime occur; these are often related to publisher changes or failures in renewals or invoicing. The sooner we hear about them, the sooner they can be fixed. Please report a problem with an ejournal or online resource when you run into such problems.
