December 2017 Content Update Academic Core

Four new titles and one updated title were released to Academic Core and Academic Core with Backfile in December 2017. 

There are now 861 titles in Academic Core with Backfile, and 725 titles in the Academic Core collection. If you subscribe to one of these packages, see a full title list in your Admin account (log-in required), or check it out on our corporate site: Academic Core with Backfile, Academic Core

On January 3, 2018, we are weeding 28 titles from the curated version of Academic Core (click here to download the title list). To help you manage your catalog, you can download a set of MARC purge records.

Please note that this affects customers who have joined Credo since 2016, as well as earlier accounts which have opted into the curated Academic Core package. Accounts with the legacy “Academic Core with Backfile” product are not affected. Please email if you have any questions about your subscription package.

If you do not want these 28 Backfile titles to be removed from your account on January 3rd, we can switch your subscription package to the non-curated version of Academic Core at no extra charge, and with no further paperwork. Just email for further help.
