Changes to five OCLC FirstSearch databases

As of December 2010, the Arts & Humanities Citation Index is no longer available via the Marygrove College Library.

Beginning June 30, 2011, the following databases will also become unavailable:

  • ABI/Inform
  • Biology Digest
  • Dissertation Abstracts
  • GEOBASE

All five databases are (or were) offered via the OCLC FirstSearch service. OCLC has decided to drop certain databases in order to focus on providing other services. You can read more about its plan here:

The library subscribes to a wealth of other resources designed to meet your research needs, but if you feel that Arts & Humanities, ABI/Inform, Biology Digest, Dissertation Abstracts, or GEOBASE are essential to your work, please don’t hesitate to call your librarian Christy at 313.927.1378.
