Two databases, EconLit and FIAF (Film/TV Periodicals Index [International Federation of Film Archives]), will be transitioning from their current platform on OvidSP.   EconLit will be moving to CSA Illumina and FIAF will transition to the Chadwyck-Healey platform at the end of June. CDL has created interim screens from the links to these databases in the Melvyl Catalog and the NGM Pilot. 

The interim screens link to both platforms, which will run in parallel beginning immediately through June 30, 2010.  If campuses are currently using a direct URL to the OvidSP platform, they may wish to change to the persistent identifiers (PIDs) in their lists of databases, guides, etc.  On July 1, the PIDs will change automatically to the new CSA Illumina and Chadwyck-Healey URLs for each database.
