News, Academic Libraries, Medical Literature: For Wiley Journals, A New Look

In a next week, those who rely on subscription journals or database content from John Wiley Company – one of the largest sci-tech-medicine international publishers – will notice a major redesign of their website.

The familiar Wiley Interscience page is going to be replaced by their new portal, Wiley Online Library. While plans are put into place for the switch-over on Saturday, Aug 7, 2010, users may notice some downtime on the Interscience site.  (Both sites cannot run simultaneously.)

Following is a screenshot of the company announcement made in April 2010:

Note:  The implementation of the new portal includes our subscription to the Cochrane Library.

Any major migration in technology can present some access or usability challenges.  (Forewarned is forearmed, the old saying goes.)  If you have bookmarked specific links to Wiley journal articles or e-textbooks, you will need to update the URLs to the new site…  as the old links will stop working within a few weeks.

Here’s hoping for a smooth transition for Wiley!
