Waldo Library does have a current subscription to TAPPI Journal. First, TAPPI only prints one print volume of the journal, which comes out at the end of the year. So we won’t receive the 2009 volume until early 2010, as a print volume.
As far as the online version of this journal is concerned, we do not have access to it through the library’s website. Instead, we have (due to Tappi membership rules) a username and password which ONLY I (as the engineering librarian) have access to. So if WMU students or faculty need copies of articles from this journal, they have two options:
1) Older issues – we have print copies of these (with title changes) in the Lower Level stacks of Waldo:
- Tappi and Tappi Journal 1949 – Aug.2001 – Call number: TS 1080 .T3
- Solutions! Sept. 2001-July 2006 – Call number: TS 1080 .T3
2) More current issues 2006 to the present (until we begin receiving the bound end-year volumes) – Students need to contact me at the Science Reference department for individual articles.
Please pass this information on to your undergraduate and graduate students. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at edward dot eckel at wmich dot edu (387-5140).
WE NOW HAVE PROXIED ACCESS TO THIS RESOURCE – See my June 1, 2010 post at: https://parkview.wordpress.com/2010/06/01/tappi-journal-online/
