    Alma: KB+ Portfolios Without Coverage Dates

    Question

    Why are some of the portfolios missing coverage dates?

    Answer

    In some cases, often old newspapers and magazines, the provider is unable to supply the coverage dates. In these cases when ingested into the knowledgebase it will appear to the end user that full access is available to the resource for the entire date range available, even if you have access to only a specific period. To ensure continued access to these portfolios, KB+ and Exlibris have agreed that these portfolios should be ingested and recommend that a local note is added to warn end users of the probability of limited access once in the resource. Please see below for the collections affected.
