I hope everyone has enjoyed the bank holiday weekend and made the most of the weather! I’ve just been working on the Wiley Blackwell Collections for this year and wanted to let you all know that I’ve had a definitive response from Matthew Howells on whether or not new (2013) subscribers to the NESLi2 Wiley Online Library would have access to ceased or transferred titles (obviously, when content is still to be hosted via the Online Library) if they were listed in the 2012-2014 offer.
Matthew states if the institution is a new subscriber in 2013 then the answer is “no”. But, Institutions who subscribed in 2012 will have access as long as they are a subscriber and then we go into all sorts of complexity about core/subscribed titles! But, I just wanted to share this nugget of information with you!
We are currently in discussion about whether or not we will now need to have two lists available for 2013 subscribers and Year 2, 2012 subscribers as titles will vary slightly – but will keep you posted. Please let us know if you have any comment on this.
