I don’t mean to sound naïve here, it’s just that I’m not very familiar with SFX.  But isn’t updating the access date something SFX should do?

I mean, if a publisher changes their default access start date from 1997 to 1998, I would expect that to be updated in my knowledgebase without me having to intervene.  Granted, it may take some time for the publisher to send the new info to the knowledgebase vendor.  Or maybe SFX is different?

I read the language as Deborah does, and as the eResources librarian at a library with only individual titles, I think I have some work to do in SFX...

We lost access to some 1997 content but not other 1997 content. I contacted them Feb. 26. They contacted me about 5 days later and said they were instituting a rolling 20 year backfile. I wrote them back with the link Debbie gave in her email and said, Are you sure about that, because this is the announcement I saw. I never heard back. I just wrote them again today.

Hi All,

In their March 2018 newsletter, sent out 8 March, Harrassowitz informed their customers that:
Taylor & Francis to Reinstate Courtesy Access Back to 1997

HARRASSOWITZ has been carefully monitoring the recent feedback from the library and academic community regarding Taylor & Francis’ new policy to introduce a rolling wall of 20 years of courtesy access.

We are pleased to report that in response to an open letter from head librarians from more than 110 UK and Irish institutions outlining the disadvantages of a rolling wall for the research process and the additional administrative burden on librarians, Taylor & Francis has decided to reinstate courtesy access back to 1997 for “full access” Library and Subject Collection customers. This new policy applies with immediate effect.

Has anyone else heard anything like this from any other source?
I know that on the 27th of February we still had access back to 1997 (where it applied) but no longer on 1 March.
I would very much be in favor of T&F getting rid of their rolling wall access again. It is a pain to manage!
What have others heard?
Thanks, Sara
