Updates and news
NC LIVE has removed a resource from our Browse A-Z Resource page: American Slavery: A Composite Autobiography (or The American Slave: A Composite Autobiography).
This ebook series is part of NC LIVE's ABC-CLIO ebook collection. It used to have a direct link in the ABC-CLIO platform, but it no longer does. Because of this, we've removed it as a direct link on our Browse A-Z page.
Action may be necessary if you have a direct link to American Slavery: A Composite Autobiography on your website. This link now directs to the ABC-CLIO homepage.
1,632 outdated titles have now been deleted from NC LIVE's Ebooks on EBSCOhost collection.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.
