The UC Libraries recently purchased the Journal of Fluid Mechanics Digital Archive, giving us online access all the way back to volume one of this important journal. The archive "is a repository of every single article published in the Journal of Fluid Mechanics between 1956 and 1996. It houses over a quarter of a million pages of material, reproduced as high-resolution PDFs, and is fully searchable."
Links from our article databases will soon be enabled in UC-eLinks. In the meantime, you can search and browse these earlier issues directly in the archive. Access to current issues continues to be available at the Journal of Fluid Mechanics online.
