EPIC update

Epic regular update

Happy Holidays from EPIC! (plus some more 2018-2019 subscription options...)

13 December 2017

This is a quick note to say Happy Holidays, Merry Xmas and all the best for the New Year!

...but, before you all head off to relax for the Xmas Break, I thought I’d let you know about some more brand new subscription options that will be available to EPIC members in 2018-2019:

Rollout of EPIC subscription options for 2018-2019

3 November 2017

This is to let you know that I am in the process of rolling out the subscription options for EPIC member libraries for the 2018-2019 EPIC subscription year (beginning 1 April 2018).

Come say hi at LIANZA

22 September 2017

You are all probably being swamped with these right now, so I thought that I should add to it as well...

If you are heading to Christchurch for the LIANZA Conference 2017 next week, please do come by and say hi to me and the rest of the National Library crew at the National Library of New Zealand stand (stand 7 - apparently, right next door to the emergency exit..) in the exhibition area.

Updated EBSCOadmin Standard Reports - webinar training sessions

8 August 2017

This is a note to alert EPIC member libraries that subscribe to EBSCO resources about the upcoming updates to EBSCOadmin Standard Reports and to also let you know about some webinar training opportunities to learn more about using the EBSCOadmin reporting and statistics functionality.

This is a link to FAQs about the update which also includes a short overview video.

Special "end of financial year" Digitales MUZZY subscription offer

12 June 2017

Digitales have a special "end of financial year" offer for EPIC member libraries (valid through to the end of June 2017).

It is a special, standard price (regardless of size) of NZ$450.00 to subscribe to MUZZY BBC (including unlimited remote access) through to the end of the EPIC subscription year (31 March 2018).

Including the 5% EPIC administration fee, this would total NZ$472.50 (plus GST).
