Journal Backfiles Purchased


The Medical Center Library has recently purchased the LWW Journal Extended Archive Collection of backfiles of 306 journals, offering a range of medical and nursing specialties — from infectious diseases to neurology to surgery. This massive archive includes complete coverage of each title in the collection, from the first volume through 2008. With this collection, we now own historical issues of world-renowned journals such as Anesthesiology, Circulation, and Nursing.  Archival resources are crucial to the research process, providing a valuable chronology of theories and discoveries that underpin today’s healthcare practices and inform future innovations.
