Business Insights: Essentials, which is the redesigned Business & Company Resource Center, launched in early July, and now the automatic redirect works. That means that if, in your library or consortium’s database listings, you chose to leave the Business & Company Resource Center URL in place and to rely on the automatic redirect, your patrons will now get to Business Insights: Essentials.

While not required, you have the option of updating the database URL so you do not rely on the automatic redirect. The Gale support sites for Oregon library staff list your library or consortium’s URL for BI:E.

You might check to make sure of a few things:

·         Is the redirect working if you did not update the Business & Company Resource Center URL?

·         When you click on PowerSearch or the tool feature within most databases called “change databases” or “change resources” and get to the Gale common menu (the list of databases available via the statewide contract), is Business Insights: Essentials in that list? (It will be in the bottom section called Additional Products.)

·         If you specifically reference Business & Company Resource Center on your library website, have you changed the name to Business Insights: Essentials?

·         If you highlight databases with matching icons, have you changed the BCRC one to BI:E? http://www.gale.cengage.com/images/database_icons/
