FAQ on the discontinuation of World Powerbase and the Political Contact Suite
Why is World Powerbase being cancelled?
- We are ceasing updates to the World Powerbase directory to focus on other initiatives.
- The cost of updating World Powerbase is too great given market demand.
When will the last update to World Powerbase be made?
- The final World Powerbase update took place on March 31, 2013.
- Current subscribers will have access through June 30, 2013.
Is there any way to extend my access to World Powerbase?
- After June 30, 2013, World Powerbase will not be available electronically; however, current subscribers can purchase the print book Worldwide Government Directory with Intergovernmental Organizations: 2013 edition, which will contain the contact information updated through March 31, 2013. The individual biographies of World Powerbase are not part of the print edition.
Can I get a refund?
- If you are not satisfied with the offer for credit, we can arrange a refund.
Where can I find the Political Contact Suite?
- The Political Contact Suite was created for customers to access their directories and online reference books from CQ Press on a single page. With the discontinuation of the final directory, we will no longer be updating the Political Contact Suite page. Any users trying to access the Political Contact Suite will be automatically redirected to the CQ Press Electronic Library page where they can access all of their CQ Press library content in one place.
