ACS Tokens

Things You Should Know

Searching the Index = Free; Downloading Article = 1 token ($10)

We have unlimited searching of all ACS publications. This includes the ability to read the abstracts in order to see if the article sounds useful for what you are doing.

Be choosy as to what you download, however, because the tokens do run out. The cost for purchasing the tokens is $10,000 for 1000 tokens. We are starting out the year with the full 1000.

Last year we had to order extra packages, at a cost of another $5000.

We want you to have what you need, but please help us keep costs in check by only downloading what you actually believe to be valuable for your work.

Tips for Tokens

Read abstracts to be sure that the article is relevant to your work.

If you are working with a group, download the article once and share it.

If the whole class needs to read an article, download the article once and post it on ANGEL.
