EBSCO Launches Data-Rich E-Journal Reference Tool

Sep 14, 2007

To assist librarians in tracking e-journal changes, EBSCO has launched its data-rich E-Journal Updates feature within EBSCONET. With E-Journal Updates, librarians have a collection-specific knowledge source they can use to make sure they're taking advantage of all access opportunities available. With E-Journal Updates, library staff can: review titles where format or pricing options have changed and indicate preferred format for renewal; view an archived history of changes made via E-Journal Updates; receive notification when an online version of a current print subscription becomes available; identify journals that have changed in publisher; view new open access titles that are added to EBSCO's title database; and identify titles that have been added to or removed from e-journal packages purchased through EBSCO. The alerting system can also notify customers via RSS.
