In November, the Resource Sharing Committee revised the VIVA ILL Guidelines. At their meetings this week, the Steering Committee and SCHEV Library Advisory Committee approved these revisions, effective December 4, 2013. Major changes were made to reflect current practice and the maturity of the VIVA ILL procedures, such as removing “Ariel” and replacing it with “secure electronic document transmission system” and removing references to load leveling.
The VIVA contract with Bowker for Books in Print with Reviews (both the Global and United States editions) ends on July 1st. If institutions want to subscribe individually, they can contact Randy Boecker at 1-800-281-0079 or email@example.com.
The URL for Oxford Reference Online has changed. The old site location at www.oxford-digitalreference.com will remain throughout December 2012 and redirect to the new URL at www.oxfordreference.com . Members are advised to update accordingly.
If your institution uses EZProxy, it is also advised that your ezproxy.cfg file be updated to reflect the following:
Title: Oxford Reference
You will not need to configure EZProxy for each individual title in Oxford Reference.
