Reminder: upcoming deadline for EPIC subscription confirmations 2017-2018

22 February 2017

A big thank you to all the libraries that have sent through EPIC subscription confirmations for 2017-2018. This, however, is a reminder to those libraries that haven’t returned their confirmations that 5pm next Friday 3 March 2017 is the deadline to do so (use this link to access subscription confirmation instructions and the downloadable subscription confirmation forms).

Please do ensure that you return your 2017-2018 subscription confirmation for those resources that your library currently subscribes to through EPIC that you wish to retain in 2017-2018 as access to anything that is not indicated on your 2017-2018 EPIC subscription confirmation form will cease as of 1 April 2017.

If you are having trouble meeting the deadline, please email me at paula.banks@dia.govt.nz  to negotiate an extension, otherwise, if I do not receive a subscription confirmation from your organisation by the 3 March 2017 deadline, I will assumed that your organisation is cancelling your existing subscription and will notify the applicable vendor/s of the cancellation.

A reminder, however, that if you are looking at adding new subscription options through EPIC and you feel you need more time than the 5pm March 3 2017 deadline to decide about whether you want to add them to your subscription for 2017-2018, EPIC member libraries can add new pro-rated subscription options at any time during the EPIC subscription year, the EPIC subscription guide provides more detail about this.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need any further information.
