Those subscribers that have this resource please note that the resource has been moved on the STAT!Ref interface from "J" to "D" and the ISBN number and Marc records have changed. However, as this is simply a name change, the STAT!Ref access links will not change and you will see the new content and name change in your subscription automatically.
