Databases moving to new search interface at end of July

Several OCLC FirstSearch databases have been taken over by new providers:
now use the EbscoHOST search interface, which allows several databases to be searched simultaneously. Geobase (geography) and GeoRef (geosciences) will also move to another provider, shortly.

Links to these databases in SAULCAT and on the Library webpages have been altered, to reflect this change.

NB: any existing links to these databases in online reading lists, WebCT, etc., will need to be altered
