Knowledge Base+ at Day One

We’ve reached the point in the development of KB+ where we are pretty confident about what we’ll deliver on day one 1st September 2012.

I’ve divided it all up into the data that will be there, the services that will be provided and what libraries and suppliers can do.

We’d really welcome comments…

What data will be there?

Functionality in Place

Activity Undertaken by JISC Collections

Opportunity for Users to Add Data

Title, package, platform and coverage for the current NESLi2, SHEDL, WHEEL and JISC eCollections agreements – in excess of 12,000 titles

 
Wherever possible institutional entitlements to the above (based on JISC Collections data and local institutional data)

Licence information covering key values such as authorised user, remote access, ILL, use in course packs, post-cancellation access

 
Non-JISC Collections agreements. Currently we have IEEE publication information, we hope that institutions will add more data on agreements during the testing phase
