RLG Databases are gone

In the past year OCLC and RLG, two very large database vendors, merged. The RLG Catalog is being merged with OCLC’s WorldCat and has been removed from our database lists. The RLG platform is fading away. All the databases that it supported will move to OCLC or other companies. Anthropology Plus and History of Science, Technology, and Medicine will now be available on the OCLC platform and Francis will move onto the CSA Illumina Platform. If you haven’t used any of the databases on CSA Illumina, like Philosopher’s Index,, Index Islamicus, and Sociological Abstracts, give them a try. It’s a nice interface and allows searching across multiple databases in broad subject areas (Arts and Humanities, , Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, and Technology).
