Subject: RE: Sage Full Text Collections -- Carol Morse

We have ProQuest and EBSCOHost databases and recently noticed our
full-text content to Sage journals was gone in EBSCOHost but not
ProQuest (yet). I contacted EBSCO (our subscription vendor) and they
informed me (sent me a copy of a July Sage press release) that all Sage
full-text titles would only be available in aggregate databases through
the end of 2003, and, thereafter, only through their own full text
collections. EBSCO made the decision to pull all the Sage full-text
immediately to be in compliance. I can send you the release if you want,
or you can contact EBSCO for verification.
