This is a reminder that as part of the merger of Blackwell Publishing with John Wiley and Sons, all Wiley-Blackwell’s online products will be combined onto a single Wiley InterScience platform as of July 1, 2008.  The Blackwell-Synergy platform will no longer be available as of that date. For more information, see

Also on July 1, Gale’s Expanded Academic ASAP will be discontinued from the UC libraries’ list of resources and references to it need to be removed from your local web sites, guides, lists, etc.  An overlap period has already begun with EBSCO’s Academic Search Complete, which is replacing the Gale database.  Per EBSCO, a new platform, EBSCOhost 2.0, will be moved in this July as well.
