EPIC Subscription options for 2015 continuing to roll out

9 December 2014

As I have been doing a few additions in the last couple of weeks, I thought that I would take this opportunity to remind you that EPIC subscription options for 2015-2016 are continuing to be rolled out via the EPIC website.

I also thought I would take this opportunity to let you know about some of the new options that are available in 2015:

PressDisplay - unlimited user offer

21 November 2014 

As I mentioned in an earlier email ProQuest and PressReader are working on a pricing offer for unlimited user access to Library PressDisplay for EPIC libraries. They are still in the process of confirming pricing for the 2015-2016 EPIC subscription year (beginning 1 April 2015) however, they have provided me with tailored pricing for existing subscribers to upgrade their current subscription from 1 December 2014 through to 31 March 2015.

Feedback request from Bookery

4 November 2014

Last month while I was at the LIANZA conference (btw - it was lovely to chat to so many of you at the National Library stand) I was talking with Jacob Miceli from Bookery.

Bookery currently offer a range of online language training courses through EPIC, including Mango Languages and the online versions of the ever popular Clarity English language courses.

EPIC - LIANZA Conference & subscription options rollout reminder

10 October

This is a bit of reminder for those of you that are attending the LIANZA Conference in Auckland (starting on Sunday!) to take some time out from having your mind blown at all of the sessions and use this valuable opportunity to visit the EPIC suppliers at the Exhibition Hall to talk to them directly about what they will be offering through EPIC in 2015...and, just to make it easier, here is a map of where they will all be situated.

Library PressDisplay - missing editions - The Press & Southland Times

7 July 2014

First of all apologies again to Libraries that do not subscribe to Library PressDisplay, but this to let those that do know that PressDisplay is currently missing today's editions of The Press and the Southland Times. I have logged a service desk query with ProQuest Technical support tsupport@proquest.com about it, but if you are having complaints from customers I would encourage you to do so as well in order to be updated directly about the issue.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Ancestry Library Edition connection errors

17 June 2014

This is to let you know that a number of libraries have reported connection errors to Ancestry Library Edition. ProQuest have been alerted to the problem and hopefully it will be resolved soon.

I will update you all if I receive any further information.

Apologies to those of you that do not subscribe to Ancestry Library Edition or are not experiencing problems.

Another EPIC invoicing update

28 May 2014

This is to let you all know that my finance people have let me know that all the EPIC invoices have now been processed for payment. You should receive them in the same manner that you receive other invoices from the Department of Internal Affairs (which is either via post or email) - i.e. if you usually receive Te Puna invoices via post, then your EPIC invoice should be delivered via post as well.

EPIC Invoicing update

22 May 2014

So...it turns out that the EPIC invoicing file is proving to be a bit of a nightmare for our finance team. The new EPIC model & product offer has meant that they are dealing with nearly 3 times the amount of invoicing lines that they dealt with for previous years' EPIC invoicing. They are slowly but surely getting them out, but the word from finance (while they are still talking to me...) is that they are unlikely to get the last of them out until some time next week.
