Elsevier exceptions – not part of deal:

*Saunders - One of the imprints on the list provided by the CIC was Saunders Ltd, but this is misleading.  There was only one title with this imprint in the list of 2008-2009 books included in the deal.  None of the books we previously purchased with the regular Saunders imprint are included.  Our Elsevier sales rep has indicated in the past that the Elsevier Health Sciences imprints are not available on ScienceDirect, as they are licensed through MD Consult.  We should continue to purchase print books from Saunders, and they will not be included in the CID deal.

*Elsevier JAI – Elsevier JAI also does not appear to be included; this was not in the CIC list, but we can’t assume it is included because of Elsevier being part of the name.
