Upcoming Changes to ebrary Subscriptions: Ebook Subscription Removals Notice (05.26.2016)

The ProQuest ebook team would like to notify you of upcoming semi-annual title removals from ebrary subscription products. These removals will take place on June 22, 2016.

Title removals from subscriptions are mainly due to requests from publishers or to achieve parity across subscription products.

These semi-annual removals represent less than 1% of any subscription.

Below are additional details regarding these subscription changes.

Academic Complete™ (including United Kingdom and Ireland Edition)

  • Number of titles to be removed990

College Complete™

  • Number of titles to be removed115

Public Library Complete™

  • Number of titles to be removed143

Schools and Educators Complete

  • Number of titles to be removed59

A subset of these titles will be removed from other ebrary subscriptions.

Removals will be effective June 22, 2016 on your ebrary channel; with a MARC record update after June 23, 2016. We expect these changes to be reflected in your discovery solution (Summon®, OCLC, etc.) by mid-July 2016.

Many of these titles are available for purchase at a 10% discount until June 15, 2016.

For a complete list of removals and a usage report of these titles on your ebrary site, please contact our Product Support team at support@ebrary.com.

ebrary MARC update for May 2016

ebrary MARC record pages were auto-updated on 2016-05-19.

If your ebrary MARC records page did not auto-update on this date, it is most likely because you had manually updated earlier in the month.

You can manually update your ebrary MARC records page at any time by clicking the “Update MARC Data” button.  If there have been any changes since the previous dated/time-stamped line, a new dated/time-stamped line will be created with the additions and deletions since then.

Over the past few months there have been more changes than usual, with some titles being removed then added back in.  We are working to limit the number and frequency of removals, but for the time being please be sure to process the adds and deletes in order from oldest to newest.
