Wrigley has let go our R&D librarian and all the journals have disappeared. None are being circulated. They are trying to line up a service which carries all the journals we use to receive so we can review them on line.
As a AGFD member, I still receive J.Agric Fd. Chem. My C&E News which I use to get on line has suddenly stopped.
Who has gone through this type of transformation and how was it managed?
