Upcoming Changes to Elsevier Journal Subscription

Due to dramatic increases to subscription costs, LSU will be canceling its subscription package of Elsevier journals at the end of 2019. Going forward, LSU Libraries will subscribe to Elsevier journals on a title-by-title basis, retaining the most highly used journals by the LSU community. LSU Libraries will offer two options to access journals to which LSU will no longer be subscribing. For more details and updates, visit lib.lsu.edu/elsevier-changes.

Accessibility

LSU is committed to ensuring its online content is accessible to all users, regardless of ability or disability. Per Section 504 of the Workforce Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, all online content, including but not limited to course materials, websites and pdfs, must be compliant according to WCAG 2.0 Level AA and WAI-ARIA 1.0. LSU’s entire online presence must be brought into compliance by August 2019. 

Sites in non-university-supported solutions will need to be remediated by the managing unit. Faculty are responsible for remediating their own websites. 

For guidelines and best practices, view LSU Accessibility.
