POWER Library has provided the public and school libraries within Pennsylvania with access to many valuable resources for years. The Office of Commonwealth Libraries has just announced that the following resources will be provided under the POWER Library Network this year:
- General Periodical Resources (H.W. Wilson)
- Newspaper Resources (Gale)
- Business Resources (ProQuest ABI Inform)
- Contemporary Authors
- AP Photo Archive
We’ve been told that Contemporary Authors and AP Photo Archive will continue to be available uninterrupted. We should know more details about the new additions to our resources next week.
This also means that some of the electronic resources and databases that the Free Library has been able to offer will no longer be available.
The EBSCO Host titles that will be gone as of today include:
- MasterFILE Premier
- Business Source Premier
- MAS Ultra – School Edition
- Middle Search Plus
- Primary Search
- Newspaper Source
- Teacher Reference Center
- Auto Repair Reference Center
Please stay tuned here for announcements and feel free to comment about the impact of these changes!
