The nation wide agreement with Elsevier has been cancelled from June 30 2018. You can read more about the circumstances at the Open website, see link below. SLU will not be able to access articles published in Elsevier journals with a publication date from July 1 2018 and onwards.

The Library has implemented a service, Get it now, that will deliver recent Elsevier articles directly to staff and students at point of need. You can always reach this service through the Elsevier website and through many other databases. See link below for Elsevier's website (ScienceDirect).
