Wilson databases migration update

Update January 4, 2012: all Wilson databases are now available on the Ebsco platform.

As previously announced, Wilson databases are migrating to the Ebsco platform.
You can access them now by opening any Ebsco resource and clicking the “Choose database” button. At the end of the list of databases you will see the Wilson resources.

Ebsco is expected to remove access via the Wilson platform no later than the end of January. I therefore suggest that libguides and other documentation be updated as soon as possible.

New access url’s appear below:
