We have recently added some FAQ to our support pages. We hope they will be useful especially to institutions new to KB+ in giving an overview of the benefits of KB+ and how it could be used.
If you have any tips you would like to share for those starting to use KB+ please follow us on twitter and give us your ideas using the hashtag #kbplustips or just send us an email; firstname.lastname@example.org.
I was also excited to see that on 12th December Laura Wilkinson is holding a “KnowledgeBase+ Day” dedicating some time to get to know the system. You can find out all the details on her blog & follow how it goes on the day using the hashtag #KBPlusDay.
Do let us know if anyone is planning something similar .
If you would like to see some of the new features of release 3.3 in action, hear more about how KB+ and JUSP are working together and other exciting future developments please take a look at the recording of last weeks webinar.
The webinar starts with an introduction from Liam highlighting how KB+ has grown over the last couple of years in both content and features. A focus for the future includes building on communication and collaboration including highlighting how KB+ can be integrated into library workflows.
Owen provides a live demo of the system covering the basics such as adding licenses and subscriptions while showing some of the systems new features.
Jo talks about the benefits of JUSP and KB+ working together and the importance of getting feedback and ideas from the community on how we develop the systems further
The webinar ends with David talking about possible future developments including work with GoKB and the investigation into ebooks and whether or not KB+ could offer a solution.
Alongside working with our Jisc colleagues to add the latest title list for NESLI2 deals and working with other publishers such as OECD we have also begun to look at smaller publishers based on your subscriptions.
(Details on tracking new additions to KB+ are available at, https://knowledgebaseplus.wordpress.com/2013/10/02/new-package-alerts/)
We are creating Master lists for smaller publishers such as ‘Academy of Management’ and ‘American Marketing Association’ based on the titles that we know you currently subscribe to. We hope to add further titles to these collections based on your feedback.
Our aim is to ensure we have the titles you require to manage your subscriptions effectively within KB+ so please let us know if there are any collections you are keen to see added to KB+
