NC LIVE MyiLibrary titles will be migrating to Ebook Central on Wednesday, March 21, 2018.

As you might remember, in July 2017 ordering for MyiLibrary was disabled and moved to LibCentral. The migration on March 21st completes the MyiLibrary transition to Ebook Central.

The details:

• Once your titles are migrated to Ebook Central, your MyiLibrary account will no longer be active for you or your patrons.

• Your MyiLibrary URL – and URLs contained in your MARC records – will redirect to Ebook Central through 2021.

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.
