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+
Since the start of the new year JISC Collections have appointed two new Data Managers to the project. Myself (Damyanti Patel) & Christina Ley. I previously worked as eLibrary manager for Birmingham City University and Chrissie is currently working at Bangor University as Library Assistant (e-resources). We have joined Magaly Bascones who has been working on KB+ since the beginning. One of our key roles is to liaise with publishers and suppliers, gather list of titles within collections verify the information before loading into KB+. In the last couple of weeks we have added titles from a wide range of publishers highlights include
- American Chemical Society – including the ACS Chemical & Engineering news archive
- Brill – including the NESLI2 full collection
- Duke – including the NESLI2 expanded collection
- Karger – including the NESLI2 full collection
- Project Euclid – including the NESLI2 prime collection
- Royal Society of Chemistry
- SAGE Publications
- Taylor and Francis – including the NESLI2 collections STM & SSH
- Wiley – including the full NESLI2 collections, STM, SSH & library opt in titles
A full list of publishers we have added was sent to the subscribers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) and full details of all the collections within KB+ are available on our exports page.
We have also begun working on identifying further NESLI2 collections and non NESLI2 publishers to begin working with so hopefully we will be adding titles from publishers & collections such as JSTOR, Emerald, Springer, Elsevier and more.
We would appreciate your help in identifying titles and collections you are keen to see in KB+ so please drop us an email or leave a comment on any packages you would welcome seeing in KB+
