AnthroSource and Wiley-Blackwell Ken Siegert 16 Jan 2009 15:46 UTC


Maybe I missed this, but I don't remember seeing anything on the list-
serv about this change.

This morning, someone in ILL called me because our AnthroSource URL
wasn't working for Latin American Anthropology Group Contributions
(Vol. 1 1976).  We have all of our AnthroSource URLs listed as http:// (xxxx standing for the title's
abbreviation).  I looked at it and got an error message that the page
couldn't be found.  I dropped the /loi/xxxx, and was able to connect
to AnthroSource.

When I got there, I discovered that 1) not all of the previous
content is on the AnthroSource site anymore, 2) the pdf and html
links take the user to Wiley-Blackwell (initially, many of the
articles came up with an error message #4090 on the W-B site), 3) the
content that is no longer on AnthroSource is available on W-B, but if
it is earlier than 1997 we are prompted for a username/password.

Concerning missing content, here's an example.  With the old version
of AnthroSource, we had Vol. 1-6 (1989-94) of Latin American
Anthropology Review, now only Vol. 1 is listed on the AnthroSource
website (under the title Journal of Latin American and Caribbean

I also found that the official changes began on 12/22/08  -- click
here for the link.

After all of the problems we had when Wiley & Blackwell merged this
past summer, it appears that we are going to have the same problems
with AnthroSource.

Anyone else have problems??
