World News Connection news feed ends

From Jan. 1, 2014 the World News Connection (WNC) daily news feed will end.

WNC has been hosted for Cambridge users by East View Information Services for the last several years.  In 2013 WNC was migrated to a new platform.

From Jan. 1, 2014 the WNC will continue to be available from East View via the link in the eresources A-Z but this will only be an archive service with content ending with Dec. 31, 2013.

Previously the WNC service comprised just the data from the U.S. Open Source Center (OSC) from 2005.  Through 2013 East View has added the back-files from 1995 through 2004 making the archive complete from 1995 to 2013.

You can read a full description of the current status and background of WNC on the CRL (Center for Research Libraries) eDesiderata pages  – click on the “CRL Review tab”.

There is also a post about the termination of the WNC service on the AllGov website here.
