NCLIVE Database Changes 2015  

Last Updated: Aug 20, 2014 URL: Print Guide
Home Print Page


NCLIVE, a consortium including nearly all academic, public and school libraries in North Carolina, has announced its resource selection decisions for 2015-2017. Beginning on January 1, 2015, many of the resources to which Meredith subscribes via NCLIVE will be changing, including some of our most-used resources.  

The library is currently evaluating how to respond to these resource changes; faculty feedback will be crucial to this process.


Who to contact: Liaison Librarians

For more information about the resource changes, and to offer any feedback, please contact the liaison librarian for your department.
