Updates and news
We will be performing maintenance on our servers Tuesday, January 12th at 7:30am. This may result in a brief downtime, around 10 minutes, for NC LIVE proxies and website.
The NC LIVE link for PrepSTEP/ LearningExpress Library is now directing to PrepSTEP instead of LearningExpress Library for all academic libraries. The interface is the same, but the options below the search box are different. Users can switch between PrepSTEP and LearningExpress Library at any time.
If your library is using the EBSCO link instead of the NC LIVE link for access to PrepSTEP, and you would like your access to default to PrepSTEP instead of LearningExpress Library, you will need an updated link. Please contact the NC LIVE Help Desk for your updated link.
This update is for Credo Academic Core Subscribers (most NC LIVE community colleges, NCICU, and UNC institutions). If you are unsure of whether your library subscribes to Credo Academic Core or Credo Complete Core, please contact the NC LIVE Help Desk.
Content Additions and Updates:In 2020 Credo Reference added or updated nearly 100 titles in Academic Core. See content updates here.
Content Removals:They also removed 55 outdated or low-usage titles from Academic Core. Contact the NC LIVE Help Desk for a list of removals and MARC record purge files. If you access Credo in a discovery service, no updates are necessary.
