Updates and news

NC LIVE will be upgrading its EZproxy instances to version 6.3.5 on Friday, March 9th. The upgrade will take place from 9:00am to 3:00pm, and last approximately 10 minutes for each library.

How will the upgrade affect my library's remote access?

If your library uses NC LIVE easy-on (library card barcode) or NC LIVE password: Access to NC LIVE resources will be interrupted for remote users for about 10 minutes between 9am-3pm.

If your library uses NC LIVE Hosted Proxy: Access to NC LIVE resources and locally licensed resources will be interrupted for remote users for about 10 minutes between 9am-3pm.

Last September when we launched Ebook Central, MARC records for the NC LIVE ebook collection were not available in LibCentral (the Admin tool for Ebook Central).

On February 28th, MARC records for the NC LIVE ebook collection will be available in LibCentral (complete with any customizations).

Starting with the 2018-02-28 MARC update, you will be receiving the NC LIVE MARC records in .mrc files that include 'nclive-ebooks' in their names.

We've received clarification from ProQuest that eLibrary Curriculum Edition is now 3 separate databases:
