H.W. Wilson databases transition to EBSCO

This is a reminder that EBSCO expects to have all H.W. Wilson products available on the EBSCOhost platform by December 31, 2011.  At that time, links to Wilson products will redirect to the EBSCOhost site.

EBSCO has a website dedicated to information about this transition at
http://www.ebscohost.com/wilson and a frequently asked questions page at
http://support.epnet.com/knowledge_base/detail.php?id=5702

The only statewide subscription for Wilson products is Wilson OmniFile full text select.  The contract period is through June 30th of 2012.  We will still have access to the OmniFile content during that time, but it will be searchable through the EBSCOhost platform after the transition.

Any sites with additional H.W. Wilson products should visit the EBSCO transition page to determine whether those products will be continued and how your site will be affected.
