Access to Bowker Databases Sporadic


The following is from an email from Allana Novotny, Technology & Access Services Librarian of the   Nebraska Library Commission..

Access to Books In Print, Fiction Connection, Non-Fiction Connection and Complete Connection databases is currently sporadic due to Hurricane Sandy. Here is the official statement from Bowker, the company behind these products.

“Bowker offices in New Providence, New Jersey have been closed since Monday, October 29th. Due to power outages access to Bowker products will be limited or not at all for time being. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you or your customers, and appreciate your patience.”
Bowker did not provide a date as to when access will be fully restored. Please let me know if you have any questions.
