    360 KB: LexisLibrary Database Realignment: Titles Will Be Removed & New Databases Created -- August 2020

    What is happening to the LexisLibrary databases?

    ProQuest currently has title-level information for the following LexisLibrary databases from provider LexisNexis in the Knowledgebase. The provider has changed the way they package the Lexis Library content, realigning titles into several newer collections that they sell separately.

    The following databases are no longer being updated. In order to maintain accurate and authoritative provider metadata (based on our Knowledgebase collection policy), all titles will be removed from these databases and the databases will be hidden in the Knowledgebase on 1 August 2020. The databases will become a zero-titles database, and no future subscriptions will be possible. This means that these databases (and their titles) will not be available to your patrons who use the E-Journal Portal or 360 Link, and you won't receive MARC updates for this database. However, the database will still be available for 360 Search, 360 Counter, 360 Resource Manager, Intota, and the Summon™ service.
