The current suite of NSW.net statewide licensed databases are supplied by EBSCO. Due to the complex nature of content licensing the total number of titles will fluctuate as new titles are added and old titles are deleted &/or journal title subscriptions cease. As such it is difficult to provide a definitive annual list of titles by format.
If you are interested in knowing the current number of titles across each format for a particular statewide licensed database we suggest that you refer to the latest content list spreadsheets available on the product home pages listed below. The content lists are typically available in an Excel spreadsheet and the data can be filtered by format, subject and date.
