H.W. Wilson and OCLC announced that Wilson will be removing its databases from the OCLC FirstSearch platform.   We will start to remove the H.W. Wilson databases with OCLC as the provider from Gold Rush as this takes place.  If you are continuing to subscribe to H.W. Wilson databases make sure to delete your OCLC version and then select the same database with “WILSON” as the provider in Gold Rush.  H.W. Wilson will be working with customers as this transition takes place.  Please let us know at [log in to unmask] if you have questions regarding Gold Rush and this transition.


If you are already using the H.W. Wilson platform for access to their databases, no changes are needed on your part.
