MetaPress Announces Web Site Enhancements

Oct 04, 2005

MetaPress has announced it has enhanced its publisher content aggregation site. The updated site, which formerly included content aggregation and a login page for users, now provides detailed information on the capabilities and functionality of the entire MetaPress system.

The revamped site allows end users to search within all publisher content hosted by MetaPress. This represents 2,989 titles from more than 60 publishers. When publishers allow, pay-per-view is available for titles to which the end user has no access rights. End users may also create user profiles and customize their account through the new site functionality. For publishers, the updated site provides a full description of the content management tools available and news in MetaPress services. Another key feature of the revised site is MetaPress Admin. Using MetaPress Admin, library staff may define users and monitor activity, request COUNTER-compliant usage reports and set up link-out functionality between MetaPress and other services that provide econtent or related services to end users.
