Reminders - Database Updates - GVRL & Wilson OmniFile

This is a reminder of two upcoming changes in databases.

First, Gale will be upgrading the current Gale Virtual Reference Library on December 19th.  This change will not require any change to links or MARC records, but the interface is significantly different.  For more information about the new GVRL, visit http://www.gale.cengage.com/media/training/GVRL/basics.htm (it may take a couple of minutes to load)

Secondly, Wilson OmniFile Full Text Select will be available on the EBSCOhost platform by the end of December.  However, access to Wilsonweb will not end until sometime later in January, giving us plenty of time to update links and get full statistics for the month of December.  For a short period of time, you may be able to access OmniFile in both places.

On the horizon for sometime after the first of the year will also be an upgrade to the new Proquest searching platform.  We have not yet scheduled that migration.  More information about that change will be made available in January or February.
