E-Resources: 2016 Resource Changes

2016 Resource Changes

We have added notes to both the Indexes/Databases page and the LibGuides A-Z list for all databases which will be cancelled in 2016.  The changes will only be reflected on individual LibGuides if the entry uses the default description.  Changes will not be displayed for entries which use custom descriptions or use "Content Items" (links) or "Rich Text/HTML" (links) rather than linking to the database A-Z list.

FALSC Changes

The statewide collection of e-resources will be changing for 2016 (FALSC E-Resources Updates in 2016).  Attached, please see the the list of 2016 FALSC (formerly FLVC) e-resources.  The changes are listed below.


All institutions will have access to four of EBSCO’s Source products:  Applied Science and Technology Source, Art Source, Education Source, and Humanities Source.  These new Source products combine some some of our Wilson indexes (current and retrospective) with EBSCO content, see

Cancelled (as of 12/31/15):

The following EBSCO/Wilson products will be cut. We have added "see" notes where there is a subscribed collection with overlapping full-text content. This information will be added to the A-Z page entries.  Many of the databases are indexes only, and do not include any full-text content; we did not add "see" notes for these databases, and would appreciate feedback from the Reference Department to get suggested alternate sources for these databases.  We have added notes to all databases which are being removed, except the databases being replaced by EBSCO Source databases.
