Discover a world of published academic research at your local library – but not in Croydon

If you live in Croydon you are unable to take advantage of the  free search facility for over 10 million academic articles free of charge because Croydon has not signed up its libraries to the service. Since February students, independent researchers and small businesses in many other areas have had access to  many of the world’s best academic papers, a result of a unique collaboration between librarians and publishers, who have made their journal content available for free.
