Database Update – Art Fulltext and Wilson Omnifile Migrate to EBSCO platform

Due to a merger of H.W. Wilson with EBSCO publishing, Wilson databases have been migrated to the EBSCO platform.

The migration, effective now, redirects Art Full-text and Omnifile to the same databases within the EBSCO platform. Users will see a completely different look when clicking into these two databases and will notice all of their favourite EBSCO search functions coupled with familiar Wilson content.

Existing links to full-text articles in these two databases will redirect to EBSCO and to the relevant content. Should you discover a non-working link, please search for your article on the new platform and use the pre-formatted link given in the article record.

Should you have any questions or require additional assistance, please feel free to enquire at the Library Information Desk, or to contact your Librarian
