Our Project MUSE holdings to date are now in Gobi

YBP has loaded our 28,000+ Project MUSE title holdings into Gobi as of today, 8/20/14.  Depending on whether selectors receive slips for print or electronic editions as defaults, the record will show “alt-ed already owned by library” or ” already owned by library”.  Note that MUSE titles appearing after today’s date may not reflect our holdings until we have notified YBP, a process that occurs three times a year.  Continue to assume that whenever you see a Project MUSE ebook appearing in Gobi, we have it or will be acquiring it soon as part of our MUSE package.   We anticipate that at some future date, Project MUSE and YBP will partner in a way that will make our holdings appear automatically.
