~ Visibility of complete collection holdings information allows librarians to make more informed collection development decisions ~
Birmingham, Ala. — August 15, 2011 — EBSCONET® Subscription Management users now have instant access to complete holdings details for titles in their EBSCO A-to-Z® collections.
When viewing a title on EBSCONET, librarians can now see the library’s complete holdings for that title, as managed in the EBSCO A-to-Z listing service. The display will show each of the library’s sources for that title, along with the coverage associated with each source — all available in real time through the EBSCO Integrated Knowledge Base. This new feature, in addition to the extensive title details EBSCONET already provides — available formats and purchasing options, access and registration information, license details, and more — enhances librarians’ decision-making about their e-journal and e-package subscriptions.
“With this valuable information at their fingertips within EBSCONET, EBSCO customers will be able to make more informed decisions as they manage their subscriptions. Integration among EBSCONET, EBSCO A-to-Z, and other EBSCO services offers a significant time-savings, and we continue to look for additional opportunities to maximize that integration by providing users with the information they need in the tools they use to do their jobs,” says Kristina Krusmark, MLS, EBSCONET Product Manager.
