State Budget Impacts Database Selection

July 8, 2009 at 10:19 am Leave a comment

Due to state budgetary constraints this year, a number of Ebsco databases that were previously available via a state-funded database licensing agreement have been dropped as of July 1st. The University Library is financially committed to maintaining the two flagship databases, Academic Search Premier, and Business Source Premier, even though the statewide package offers more limited versions of both. If you have questions, please contact your department’s Liaison (click on Subject Librarians). More information about the statewide agreement is here.
