Library Resource Changes in 2017

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

The Library would like to let the K community know about two important resource cancellations for 2017.

New York Times campus subscription
The Library and K College would like to thank our very generous donors for sponsoring access to the New York Times ( campus subscription pilot project. Because of the cost of the campus-wide subscription and current budgetary constraints, the Library will not be able to continue to support campus-wide access going forward. Any users who have signed up for accounts will retain access until 364 days from their initial sign-up.
Our access to the resource ends December 31, 2016.

We suggest those who wish to continue access to to pursue the personal student/educator rate.  Learn more about the student/educator rate here:
