Access Problems with Some AIP Journals

We are currently experiencing access problems to some American Institute of Physics (AIP) journals. For example, access to Journal of Applied Physics and Applied Physics Letters is not available while Physics of Fluids is accessible.

Library staff are in touch with AIP and hope that the problem is resolved quickly. If you have questions, please e-mail library@caltech.edu or call the reference desk at x3404.

UPDATE: This problem was resolved by AIP on Sunday July 22.
