We recommend letting your patrons know well ahead of time that access to these products will be ending on June 30, 2018. The timeline depends on how quickly your library typically phases out electronic resources that are discontinuing. 

Consider posting expiration messages to your website well ahead of time (the sooner, the better) to prepare your patrons. You'll also want to remove any links on your website and delete MARC records from your catalog, if applicable. 

MLS will work with the eBook vendors to post messages on the product landing pages to alert patrons beginning June 1.  In addition, MLS and MBLC will work together on messaging that we will share with libraries to assist with the transition.  Stay tuned!

Although the majority of titles in Axis360 are expected to transfer to OverDrive, user data like checkouts, holds, bookmarks will not transfer. 

Please note that the Commonwealth eBook Collections catalog will also be discontinued after June 30, 2018.
