Titles for Deletion- Ebooks on EBSCOhost and Gale Virtual Reference Library

Update- May 4, 2018:

I am still working with EBSCO to delete the 1,632 outdated titles from NC LIVE's permanent Ebooks on EBSCOhost Collection. EBSCO is working on it but hasn't yet completed the process, so these ebooks are likely still showing up in your collections. Once the ebooks are deleted, I will send out another message alerting everyone. It is not necessary anymore to form an exclusion collection to hide these ebooks. Once they are deleted, they will be deleted for everyone. I will also be sending out a MARC record delete file as soon as that becomes available.

10 titles have been successfully deleted from NC LIVE's Gale Virtual Reference Library collection. I am working with Gale to obtain a MARC record delete file, but it is not yet available. I've attached an updated title list for the current NC LIVE GVRL collection.


On April 13th, 2018 NC LIVE will be deleting outdated titles from two of its permanent ebook collections:

1,632 outdated titles will be deleted from NC LIVE's Ebooks on EBSCOhost collection (these are the same titles that we decided to "hide" a couple months ago, and the Resource Advisory Committee has now decided to delete them)

10 titles will be deleted from NC LIVE's Gale Virtual Reference Library collection

MARC record delete files will be available soon after the deletions are complete. I will email you when they are ready.

The decision to remove these titles from NC LIVE's collection was made by the Resource Advisory Committee. It was determined these titles are too outdated to remain in the collection and more up-to-date content on similar subjects is available through ProQuest's Ebook Central.
