OmniFile Full Text Select not renewed

The OmniFile Full Text select database in the EBSCO group of magazine databases has not been renewed for fiscal year 2017. Access to this database will cease on July 1, 2016. The decision to cancel this database was due to further budget constraints as well as the considerable overlap in full text article databases provided through the Gale and Proquest database packages.  All other EBSCO databases will be renewed for FY17.

Mango Languages no longer available after May 31, 2016

Due to budget reductions, the Wyoming State Library has made the difficult decision to not renew the Mango Languages contract. Several variables were factored into the decision including cost versus usage, the timing of the contract's renewal, and consideration of which online resources are essential to provide core library services. Please visit the GoWYLD language learning page for suggestions of other resources to support language learning, such as Pimsleur Audio in OneClickDigital, language learning materials in Freading eBooks, and free online services such as DuoLingo and Open Culture.
