Thank you for visiting ECS for Libraries, our library resource center. We intend for this to be a source for any information regarding our subscriptions program, Open Access, Free the Science, and any pertinent Society-related news.
We will occasionally feature FAQs from our librarians, library/librarian “profiles,” and assorted other posts that may be of interest to you.
Early in 2016, ECS held its first EGALs meeting: the ECS Group of Advisory Librarians. We asked them to help us by giving us full and frank feedback on our publishing activities as we work toward our goal of full Open Access.
We had a great meeting. One of the themes that we kept coming back to is that we are not sharing the message about what we are doing widely enough or effectively enough, and that much of what we are doing is of interest to a wider library community.
This site was created in response to this feedback, but we still have a long way to go.
Please feel free to comment or contact us with any questions, post suggestions, or to volunteer a contribution.
