Still Linking to EBSCO?

Hi,

As I’ve helped people with the transition from EBSCO to Gale, I’ve visited a lot of library, district, and ESD web pages.  I noticed that many still have links to EBSCO.  When you get a moment, please check that your library, school, district, or ESD web pages no longer link to the EBSCO databases formerly available through the statewide contract.  (The link likely won’t work anyway.)  I’ve tried to do the same with OSLIS.

If you want to replace an EBSCO link, try directing students to the Find Information page on OSLIS.  You can call the link Gale Databases or something similar.

Thanks,
