In order to increase the quality of metadata, Springer has released a new web tool that allows catalogers and librarians to easily download tailor-made batches of MARC records (Machine-Readable-Cataloging) or eBook title lists. This new tool is easy to use and allows librarians to download a batch of records to a library’s Springer eBook collections.
EBSCO announced that it has been working “to bring all Wilson databases onto the EBSCOhost platform.” There will be a “transitional access where customers of Wilson databases have access via EBSCOhost and via WilsonWeb.” However, by the end of December 2011 WilsonWeb “will be deactivated … and all access will be via EBSCOhost.” EBSCO plans to notify customers as each applicable Wilson database becomes available on EBSCOhost.
“…Now, H.W. Wilson printed reference and eBooks are represented by Salem Press. Salem and Wilson are both divisions of EBSCO Publishing. With the support EBSCO provides, these two venerable publishers of print, eBook and database reference are thriving. The combination of these resources promises expanding options for libraries everywhere. All because excellent reference is nurtured by a supportive parent corporation with great resources.”
