Ebook packages, Alma, and WorldCat Local

Since May 22, 2013, when we migrated from Innovative, changes to content in our e-book packages such as Project MUSE and our Alliance and UW DDA programs have not shown in Alma because of Network Zone issues.  These changes include titles added since May 22, as well as any deleted content to which we no longer have access.  With the switch to WorldCat Local, users can now see this previously undiscoverable content while avoiding dead links for removed content.  Until the Alma issues are resolved, UW Libraries Search beta (Primo) will not display the most accurate information about e-book package titles.  Note that this problem only affects e-book packages; individual firm-ordered e-books should appear correctly in Alma, Primo, and UW WorldCat.
