With the transitions of the MLA Bibliography and Compendex Plus databases from SilverPlatter to Ovid, the CDL no longer licenses databases on a system-wide basis on the SilverPlatter platform.  However, the CDL has renewed the license to SilverLinker for UC campuses to use with their subscriptions to SilverPlatter (SP) databases.

SilverLinker enables direct access from SilverPlatter’s bibliographic citation databases to electronic journals and also to holdings information from the California Periodicals Database.  As a service to the campuses, the CDL will continue to support the SilverLinker subscription as long as there are a substantial number of campus database subscriptions on SP’s platform.
