I started my new job here at TTI Chicago this fall and I’ve been enjoying the fact that TTI is partnered up with the University of Chicago — I get access to the library, and a slightly better rate at the gym (still got to get on that), and some other perks. However, U of C doesn’t have an engineering school. So the library has a pretty minimal subscription to IEEExplore. Which leaves me in a bit of predicament — I’m a member of some of the IEEE societies, so I can get access to those Transactions, but otherwise I have to work a bit harder to get access to some papers. So far it hasn’t proved to be problem, but I think I might run into a situation like the one recently mentioned by David Eppstein.
