Re: Fwd: problems - AnthroSource & Wiley - problems Andrea Serra 30 Jan 2009 21:56 UTC

I have the following notes in our records for the title you mentioned:

1/9/07 - AAA is currently working on getting 1980-2004 content up on
the site, and AnthroSource expects it to be available within the next
month.  When this missing content is added, institutional access will
be restricted by a 10-year moving wall. Only content older than 10
years will be available to our patrons.
8/24/07 - Later content still not available. Sent an e-mail to
AnthroSource requesting target date for this update.
8/29/07 - Email from AnthroSource that their IT department expects
content to be available mid- to late Oct. 2007.

There still seems to be no 1980-2004 content posted.

Hope this helps.
