Novelist/Novelist Plus and OCLC’s FirstSearch Database Package

July 16th, 2010

As of September 30, 2010, the current E-RICH subscription to Novelist/Novelist Plus for ILLINET libraries coordinated by the Illinois State Library will expire. The subscription will not be renewed by the Illinois State Library.

Additionally, EBSCO recently acquired OCLC’s NetLibrary Division. EBSCO plans to maintain and enhance the NetLibrary platform and will integrate NetLibrary e-books into the EBSCO host platform. Service to libraries will not be interrupted. Additionally, OCLC is no longer a reseller of vendor-owned databases; they plan to discontinue the sale of these third party databases once current subscriptions have ended.
