NC LIVE HomeGrown Ebook Collection via Biblioboard
Home Grown eBooks use a "trusted partner" authentication method that is different from other NC LIVE resources. Resource URLs in these records include NC LIVE proxy prefix information. Libraries may add their local proxy information to these URLs without removing the NC LIVE prefixes, to allow for trusted partner authentication. If you prefer to use unmodified records, please contact the NC LIVE Help Desk for more information.
