As hopefully most of you know the Library of Michigan issued an RFP earlier this year for core subscription content for MeL.  The process is detailed at, http://michigan.gov/2015melrfp.  On October 1st, the subscription eResources (aka databases) will change.  Below you will find what is leaving, what is new, and what is staying on.   If you link to specific MeL databases on your library's website, please make changes accordingly.  We will also be getting new eBooks for MeL's general GVRL Collection.  Information on that will be sent in a separate email/posting.  If you have any questions on the content, please let me know.  If you have any support or implementation questions, please contact:  meldatabaseshelp at mcls.org<mailto:meldatabaseshelp at mcls.org>.  Please share with your staff and/or colleagues/members.
