Looking for Today's Science?

After reviewing the use and cost of Today's Science in comparison to other resources we have available online, the University Library has decided to cancel our online subscription to Today's Science effective September 1, 2012.

As an alternative to Today's Science, we recommend Science News.  Current coverage (Jan. 4, 1997- date) can be found via Wiley Online access to Science News and older content can be found in Science News in JSTOR.

If you have questions or concerns about this decision, please contact the University Library’s General Reference & Popular Press Electronic Resources Team at grpp@umich.edu
