More people will know about Elsevier's publications, and also their high
And doesn't look that google will inform the user that he/she can get
the article for free from Science Direct or ClinicalKey thanks to their
institutional subscription.

Subject: Anyone opting to use the new ScienceDirect/Google service?

Hi all
I'm wondering if any of you are opting to do this?  I know it official
started yesterday so not sure anyone is on board yet, but we are curious
if anyone is participating in this option to give Google your Science
Direct holdings so that patrons can find those articles via a general
Google search....

From an Elsevier email:
"Recently we contacted you about a program to share your library's
ScienceDirect holdings information with Google. The arrangement is
designed to support access to full-text content for your patrons via
Google searches. We recognize that our first correspondence may not yet
have come to your attention.

Briefly, to ensure that the search experience is seamless for all
ScienceDirect users at your institution, Elsevier is partnering with
Google to help make your library's full-text content both discoverable
and accessible via searches on Google.

With your permission, Elsevier will share your ScienceDirect holdings
information with Google beginning November 20 and will additionally
ensure that your information is kept up-to-date as your electronic
content collection evolves.:"
Feel free to respond to me directly.
