Changes to iCONN Databases Thursday, October 22, 2009

Due to recent budget holdbacks, the State Library does not have sufficient funds to support all the iCONN databases that are currently being offered.  As a result, effective November 1, we will be discontinuing all ProQuest newspapers except the Hartford Courant and the Historical Hartford Courant.  These two newspapers are the most heavily used newspapers in iCONN.

All libraries will continue to have access to the New York Times (1985 – present), Christian Science Monitor (1996 – present), and London Times (7/1985 – present) through Gale.  In addition, academic libraries will continue to have access to the Wall Street Journal through ABI Inform.  Access to the Boston Globe was previously eliminated due to budget cuts.

On November 1, the Newspaper link on the new iCONN start page will go to a Web page that will present individual links to all newspapers that will continue to be available through iCONN.

We regret having to discontinue access to these resources but the current budget situation makes it necessary.

As of November 1st, Connecticut residents will have access to:

Christian Science Monitor (Gale) (1996 – )*
Hartford Courant (ProQuest) (1992 – )
Hartford Courant Historical (ProQuest) (1764-1922)
London Times (Gale) (1985 – )*
New York Times (Gale) (1985 – )*

* All of this content is also integrated into the federated search.

In addition to the above, academic libraries will continue to have access to the Wall Street Journal because it is part of ABI Inform, which we license separately for academic libraries.

A step to open and transparent government: text of Federal Register converted to XML to provide much easier searching.
