As a part of my self-education & professional development, from time to time I have made use of the access to research databases which the BCS has provided. When I accessed this today, I found the message: "Since introducing EBSCO databases and more recently EBSCO books to our member benefit portfolio, member usage of these benefits has declined, and as a result these services will discontinue effective from the end of December 2017."
I don't recall being consulted about this service cut. Perhaps a more positive approach would be to promote the service?
I think access to research databases is part and parcel of a professional body.
What do other members think?
