Updates and news

All NC LIVE member libraries now have access to Automate, Biography Reference Center, Biography Reference Bank, CINAHL Plus with Full Text, MasterFile Premier (Consumer Reports) and NoveList Plus.

These are new resources for NC LIVE's 2018- 2020 Resource Cycle, and they may be used by all library staff and patrons. As with all new 2018-2020 resources, the NC LIVE contract for these products begins on January 1, 2018. EBSCO is providing courtesy early access to these resources.

Library staff are encouraged to become familiar with the interfaces, promote the resources to faculty and patrons, and integrate the resources within your library's website.

 On December 31, 2017, NC LIVE access to the following resources will end:


InfoTrac Newstand

LearningExpress Library

Natural Medicines


D&B Business Browser (formerly OneSource)

Oxford Reference Online

Pronunciator & ProCitizen

What will NC LIVE do?
In order to make this a smooth transition, NC LIVE will gradually phase out access.

December 20- NC LIVE will remove links to expiring resources from our A-Z resource page. Direct links will continue to work until December 31.

December 22- NC LIVE will remove expiring resources from Summon.

Update: This issue has been resolved.

Links to individual videos from Infobase/Films on Demand are currently not redirecting. Users see a "page not found" error message. To access these videos, use the direct link to Films on Demand (, and search within that interface. We are working on a solution with Infobase and will keep you updated of developments.

Rob's Blog Lessons from the Road

I’ve done a lot of travelling recently.  All over North Carolina (naturally), South Carolina, Ohio, Italy, and Malta.  I met locals from these places, as well as fellow travelers from the UK, France, Israel, Australia and Spain.  Language barriers and cultural differences sometimes led to misperceptions and misunderstandings, but these experiences reminded me of a few good practices that can improve our work lives.
