Purchase Suggestion

Is the VCU library thinking of subscribing to Scopus literature search engine? I think this would be a valuable asset to faculty and students at VCU.

Thank you for the comments and suggestion.  Scopus has been under consideration but it represents a significant financial commitment and at this point we are not able to entertain a subscription.  We will continue to evaluate the product and negotiate for more favorable pricing.  VCU Libraries does subscribe to Web of Science which has many of the same features as Scopus and provides coverage back to 1965.  Thank you again for taking the time to send us your comments.
