Changes to the LiLI-D Lineup

Anonymous's picture

After numerous delays, we can now announce the results of the 2008 RFP for replacement databases to LiLI-D. Some of the databases in LiLI-D will be changing on January 1, 2009.

The Gale databases will be replaced with:

ProQuest Central: covers business (ABI/Inform), health and medicine, news, science, education, technology, humanities, social sciences, psychology, literature, law, and woman’s studies. (8,700 full-text periodical titles)

ProQuest Family Health: covers consumer health topics (355 full-text periodical titles)

ProQuest Heritage Quest: Genealogy and Local History Collections

Wilson Art Museum Image Gallery: a resource for art images and related multimedia gathered from collections around the world (155,000+ superior quality images with full bibliographic record)

The databases that were renewed are:

  • eLibrary Elementary (ProQuest)
  • eLibrary Curriculum Edition (ProQuest)
  • National Newspapers 27 (ProQuest)
  • Automobile Reference Center (Ebsco)
  • Book Collection: Non-fiction (Ebsco)
  • Book Index with Reviews (Ebsco)
  • 32 GVRL ebooks purchased by ICFL (in 2007 & 2008)

A email will be sent out later this week to the LIBIDAHO listserv with instructions for those libraries that maintain their own database accounts.

For those libraries linking directly to the LiLI Portal ( and those using eBranch, you will not have to do anything. All changes will be made by ICFL and will take place Jan. 1, 2009 at 12:01am.

Please note that the cancelling of the Gale databases includes the loss of access to the 11 ebooks (GVRL) Gale included. Those libraries that added links to their OPACs should remove the 11 links listed below.
