Literature Online (LION), a literature database, has moved to the ProQuest platform. You will still be able to access the old platform on Chadwyck-Healey through March 31, 2014.

Of particular note is that My Archive accounts on Literature Online will not be migrated. If you or your researchers have a My Archive account, you will need to extract all data and transfer it to a new account in the new version of the database.

ProQuest has prepared instructional materials about the new platform, and has scheduled a series of training sessions as well.

Please contact the the Library with any questions.
