The Library has recently had several enquiries from Caltech authors who have submitted manuscripts to journals in the Nature Publishing Group (NPG). NPG is aware of Caltech’s Open Access Policy that was implemented 1/1/2014. Upon acceptance and before publication of a paper, NPG is requiring a waiver from each Caltech author. The waiver is available here. As well, there is a FAQ page with details about the implementation of this new policy. If you have further questions, please email a librarian at library AT caltech.edu
CaltechAUTHORS (http://authors.library.caltech.edu/) is an institutional repository providing free access to articles written by, with, or in close association with Caltech professorial faculty. Come and see how quickly and easily author postprints (author-formatted, post-peer review and copy-edited) can be uploaded and made easily retrievable by a global audience.

The reported problem with article information being passed to DocuServe requests from Caltech Connect links on PubMed Central has now been fixed.
Please let us know if any problems persist.
Thank you for your patience!!
We currently have a problem with CaltechConnect (SFX) when accessed from within PubMed. If you click on the CaltechConnect button after a search in PubMed it is not properly showing whether we have access to that article, nor is it populating DocuServe with the article information. Until we resolve this problem find information on our subscription information via the Find Ejournals link and enter DocuServe requests by going directly to DocuServe and clicking Article under “New Request” on the left column.
We’re sorry for the inconvenience and hope to have this fixed soon. We are working with the service provider to correct the issue.
The lists of new books and journals added to the libraries’ collections during the month of February 2014 are now available.
