I have been looking forward to release 2.1 of KB+ as it includes improvements to the way we upload data and greater flexibility in terms of editing the information once it is in the system.
Uploading packages (for Datamangers only)
The new upload feature provides greater efficiency in automating some basic data formatting greater flexibility in terms of adding different types of data including ebooks and greater feedback on any issues found with the data allowing us to troubleshoot more effectively.
There are now more opportunities to edit information which is useful especially for those packages where titles are continually added, for changes to start dates etc. Editable fields now appear as underlined with a dotted line and simply click to edit. Editable fields with no data appear with the label ‘Empty’ simply click on the work ‘Empty’ to edit, you will be prompted to save save/cancel changes by clicking on the tick or cross icon. You can edit “Date fields” by choosing a date from a calendar, or by typing a date directly in YYYY-MM-DD format. Clicking the ‘Month and Year’ twice on the calendar also allows you to change years easily.
Lists of Subscriptions can be filtered by date.
The current default now displays subscription that are ‘valid’ today. If you want to see Subscriptions valid in the past or future simply type in a date using the format YYYY/MM/DD. This date filter can also be combined with the existing keyword search option. I think this improves the usability of the system in ensuring you can see the most relevant data.
Search on SUNCAT
You can check other journal details such as change of titles etc from a link to the SUNCAT records for that title.
Documentation will be updated to reflect these changes shortly and as always we welcome you feedback on these new changes.
