More than 200 libraries statewide will have access to rich content and a modern discovery experience through the Summon® service

ANN ARBOR, MI, May 9, 2017 – North Carolina’s innovative consortium NC LIVE is teaming with ProQuest and Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, to expand its offering of ProQuest® databases along with the renowned Summon® discovery service to each of its more than 200 member libraries. This unprecedented six-year agreement with NC LIVE will both expand the digital content available to North Carolinians and make it easier to discover.

Dun & Bradstreet has rebranded OneSource as D&B Business Browser. Avention, the maker of OneSource, was sold earlier this year to Dun & Bradstreet by Infogroup (the maker of ReferenceUSA). NC LIVE has updated the name to D&B Business Browser on the NC LIVE website.
The functionality of this resource remains the same, but there have been some additions to the records in D&B Business Browser:
  • All records have been matched to Dun & Bradstreet data, with the integration of D-U-N-S Numbers
  • Searches can be conducted using D-U-N-S Numbers

NC LIVE Executive Director Rob Ross will spend parts of the spring and fall in Rome to help the Conference of Italian University Rectors (CRUI) set up a new management system for electronic resources and establish workflows across the group.

All NC LIVE usage statistics are now updated through March 2017, with the exception of data from Biblioboard, OneSource, and Oxford University Press. We expect this data will be updated within a week.
