Updates and news

Alexander Street Press has been having issues with their statistics software for the last couple of months. According to our contact there, there was a problem with their logging software and statistics for October and November were not recorded properly, resulting in all of our libraries have extremely low usage, if any usage was reported at all.

They believe the issue has now been resolved, so we will be able to report accurate statistics going forward.

NC LIVE subscribes to one Alexander Street Press collection, North American Women's Letters and Diaries.

January 25, 2019 Update:

This issue has been resolved. Films on Demand titles discovered in Summon now link to the correct film in the Films on Demand Platform.

Summon Libraries:

No action is needed, though please note Ex Libris migrated all NC LIVE libraries to a new database collection. The database title remains the same: Films on Demand & Access Video on Demand (NC Live only) with the database code changed from W4- to NCLKS. If you currently use Summon and still see the W4- database code, please contact the NC LIVE Help Desk
