Upcoming Changes to ProQuest Ebook Subscriptions: Ebook Subscription Removals Notice (12.01.2016)

The ProQuest ebook team would like to notify you of upcoming semi-annual title removals from ProQuest ebook subscription products. These removals will take place on December 21, 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 removed: 3,776

College Complete™

  • Number of titles to be removed: 583

Public Library Complete™

  • Number of titles to be removed: 1,120

Schools and Educators Complete

  • Number of titles to be removed: 173

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

Approximately 2,379 titles from Taylor & Francis/Ashgate and 1,717 ebooks from other publishers.

To continue to provide your researchers with access to these ebooks, we’d like to offer you a special 10% discount on perpetual purchase of these titles until Dec. 15th, 2016, including 25% on Francis/Ashgate titles. 

Removals will be effective December 21, 2016 on your ebook account; with a MARC record update after December 22, 2016. We expect these changes to be reflected in your discovery solution (Summon®, OCLC, etc.) by mid-January 2017.

We are happy to provide the full list of removed titles – and your usage reports for these specific titles – to help you determine which are most valued by your users.
