Updates and news

All NC LIVE member libraries now have access to four new ProQuest resources, and they may be used by library staff and patrons. These new resources were acquired as part of NC LIVE's 2018-2020 Resource Cycle. You will maintain access to all current PQ resources and these four new resources through at least December 2023. 

Library staff are encouraged to become familiar with the resource's interfaces, promote them to faculty and patrons, and integrate the resources within your libraries' websites. 

UPDATE 8/15/17: The NC LIVE Video Collection is fixed, and all videos should now be playing normally.

Access to NC LIVE Video Collection may be unavailable. Users may see an HTTP 500 error or "Page not found." 

We are currently investigating the problem.

Please send any resource access issues or questions to the NC LIVE Help Desk.


All NC LIVE usage statistics are now updated through April 2017, with the exception of data from OneSource and Oxford University Press. We expect this data will be updated within a week.
