[Libs-Or] Update about Transition from BCRC to BI:E (Gale)

With Oregon accounts being transitioned from Business & Company Resource Center to Business Insights: Essential on July 2nd, I’ve been asked if the URL for that Gale database will need to be updated on library websites. The URL will change, but the old URL will redirect to the new one. A Gale rep said that by July 2nd, or not long after, he will update the BCRC URL on the Gale support sites for Oregon library staff. If you want to update the BCRC/BI:E URL on your library or consortium’s website, you are welcome to do so, but it’s not a requirement.

Note that there are two sessions about Business Insights: Essential, which is the updated version of Business & Company Resource Center that Oregon accounts will be switched<http://listsmart.osl.state.or.us/pipermail/libs-or/2012-June/011742.html> to on July 2nd.

Recall that webinar participation is free, but you must register ahead of time.

To end, remember that Gale regularly offers webinars about all of their products so some sessions in the list below could be for databases we do not subscribe to statewide. For example, the statewide contract does not include Biography in Context. Visit the OSL website<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/technology/sdlp/index.aspx#Current_Statewide_Databases> for a quick list of what is part of the statewide database package.
