This report addresses some of the challenges researchers at Hangzhou DAC Biotech face in acquiring full-length articles and staying up to date when conducting literature research. The goal of this project, sponsored by Hangzhou DAC Biotech, is to analyze their current resources and recommend alternatives and changes to improve their literature research. The results of this project show that a combination of literature resources present the best options for researchers to acquire full-length texts. We also implement an NCBI notification system to help Hangzhou DAC Biotech researchers stay up to date with the newest publications.
