FROM: Kathleen Moeller-Peiffer, Associate State Librarian for Library Development
SUBJECT: FY10 statewide databases
DATE: June 9, 2009
Although realizing that nothing is final until the budget has been passed by the State Legislature, at this time it appears that the FY10 budget will not allow the following statewide database licenses to be renewed by the State Library:
- Business Source Premier;
- Frost and Sullivan (previously licensed for NJKI business customers);
- Heritage Quest
The NJ State Library is, whenever possible, transferring database costs to federal and other funding. We will notify everyone when we get the final word regarding our FY10 allocation.
At this time the databases that the State Library plans to continue for statewide access are:
All current EBSCO database offerings with the exception of Business Source Premier;
- Novelist Plus and Novelist Plus K-8;
- Gale Custom Newspapers (minus the Star Ledger after October 31, 2009);
- Academic Search Premier for VALE, K-12 & Public Libraries.
