MCNC is going to be testing their generators on Sunday, August 23rd from 12:01AM to 6:00AM. There is no anticipated service disruption, but NC LIVE Hosted Proxies could go offline during this time.
Updates and news
We recently discovered that usage stats were missing on the NC LIVE website for Historic NC Digital Newspapers Collection, SIRS Issues Researcher and SIRS Discoverer, from January 2020 to June 2020.
These stats have now been updated and are available on our website: https://www.nclive.org/usage-reports
Note: we will continue to use COUNTER 4 reports to pull stats for Historic NC Digital Newspapers Collection since they are not included on COUNTER 5 reports yet.
As you may have heard, RBdigital was acquired by Overdrive last month. Overdrive will begin transitioning RBdigital customers to the Overdrive platform in the coming months. As an RBdigital customer NC LIVE will be affected by this change. We are working with Overdrive and RBdigital right now to figure out a transition plan for the NC LIVE RBdigital content and platform.
We will update you with more information when we have it. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact the NC LIVE Help Desk.
We are pleased to announce that NC LIVE has purchased 411 new permanent ebooks for Gale Ebooks (formerly Gale Virtual Reference Library) and RBdigital.
23 permanent reference titles for business, health, humanities, social science, and more, have been added for unlimited use. These ebooks are available on member libraries' individual Gale Ebooks platforms and the NC LIVE platform.
