Updates and news

1,632 outdated titles have now been deleted from NC LIVE's Ebooks on EBSCOhost collection.  No action is necessary on your part.

Some libraries may still have access to some of the titles if they have access to them through other avenues, such as an old Lyrasis/SOLINET Shared Collection, a current EBSCO eBook subscription collection, or an owned title that a library purchased on its own.

Please contact NC LIVE for a title list of the deletions with OCN numbers or download the MARC records.

ProQuest has shared a list of 5,929 titles that will be removed from eBook Central on June 19. Contact the NC LIVE Help Desk for a list of these titles.

Libraries with Summon do not need to take any action as the Summon eBook Central collection will automatically be updated by ProQuest.

After June 19th a MARC record delete file will be available under the Collections tab in LibCentral.

Usage data for these titles should have been shared directly with each library. If usage for these titles was not received contact ProQuest directly.

NC LIVE recently learned a more comprehensive Summon Films on Demand collection exists and recommends Summon users make the following changes to their Films on Demand subscriptions:

Subscribe to Films on Demand & Access Video on Demand (NC Live only) (code W4-)

In April, NC LIVE deleted 10 ebooks from our Gale Virtual Reference Library collection. MARC record delete files for these ebooks are now available. Please contact the NC LIVE Help Desk to obtain this file.

If you use Summon, and are subscribed to Gale Virtual Reference Library as a collection in Summon, please make sure you are only subscribed to the 16 ebooks NC LIVE currently has access to (and any additional titles your library subscribes to individually). Please contact the NC LIVE Help Desk for a title list of the current GVRL collection.
