Updates and news

NC LIVE is pleased to announce a new program to highlight resources of interest to the North Carolina library community. The Resource Spotlight program will shine a light on select e-resources through free, 3-month trials. NC LIVE libraries (and their patrons) can try out these resources with no obligation. Libraries that choose to subscribe to a spotlighted resource will receive an exclusive discount.

RBDigital and Gale recently made changes to their website infrastructure which require updated EZproxy stanzas. NC LIVE has implemented these changes on our EZproxy servers.

What do I need to do for Proxy management?

No action is required for libraries using NC LIVE Hosted Proxy or other NC LIVE authentication (library cards or passwords).

Libraries managing local proxy servers should review RBDigital and Gale stanzas and update their proxy stanza if necessary with the recommended stanzas listed below. If you are unsure of your RBDigital or Gale ID please contact the NC LIVE help desk.

NC LIVE recently updated the subject categories for the resources listed on's Browse A-Z  page. You may now see new or different subjects listed on the left-hand navigation side bar of that page.

With help from the NC LIVE Resource Advisory Committee, we renamed some subject categories and reorganized the resources listed in those subjects categories to optimize the resource browsing experience.

No action is necessary.
