Dear Valued Patrons

Please be informed that Full Text for the Economist will be not available from June 30, 2012. The magazine will become A&I after the mentioned date. Please refer to this news from EBSCOhost:

In the case of The Economist, there was recently a bid by the publisher for a semi-exclusive contract.  EBSCO did not think the required investment was justifiable, given that the cost would need to be passed on to our customers, so as of June 30, 2012, our coverage will become A&I-only (abstracting & indexing) for this magazine.  We wanted to give you a full year’s notice.  In the end, our understanding is that two vendors (Gale and ProQuest) will continue to provide limited access (to a text-only version of the publication with no images), and the publisher (via EIU) will continue to offer direct, full access (including images). 

However, the library will try to acquire any request for Full Text for this publication through the Document Delivery Service should you require any articles from the Economist after June 2012.
