Monthly Webinar – Support

This is the 8th in our monthly webinar series looking at what support is available in KB+ ranging from help answering basic queries to populating your account with your institutional data.

Watch this 40 mins webinar (excuse the long pauses) for:

  • an introduction to the KB+ Data Managers and how we can help
  • examples of common queries we are asked
  • an overview of our KB+ one day workshops
  • information on how we can save you time by populating your licence and subscription information into your account
  • information on how we can populate core title information for you

We are very keen to hear from you on other types of support we can offer and suggestions for our next series of webinars.

Please do email knowledgebaseplus@jisc.ac.uk if you have any feedback on our current userguides, workshops and webinars and if there are any other topics you want us to cover.

Monthly Webinar – Titles

Last week we began our new series of monthly webinars, which will run on the last Wednesday of each month, focusing on different areas of KB+.

Click here to watch a 15 min webinar about ‘titles’ which shows how to view a list of all your subscribed titles. (this is a re-recording of the webinar owing to some sound issues with the original recording)

In this webinar I show

  • how to filter to a list of titles within a single subscription which could be useful if you need a title list for a specific package.
  • how to filter down to single title and from easily view the usage stats for that title, the licence terms, coverage etc.
  • how to export the list of titles
  • how to check if a title is available through 2 or more packages

For further information on seeing your subscribed titles in KB+ see our userguide.

Our next webinar will be on the 24th February at 11.00 and is about Licences, please email knowledgebaseplus@jisc.ac.uk for full details on joining.

JUSP Statistics for a Single Title in KB+

KB+ and JUSP are continuing to collaborate, work undertaken in our recent release is a step towards further integration around the area of marking up core titles.

From our focus group several people asked for the ability to download JUSP statistics for a single title and this has been added to our list for possible future enhancements.

In the meantime our Technical Authority and User Functionality Lead, Owen Stephens has shared a work around which allows you to download the statistics as a CSV file.

Owen has written a ‘bookmarklet’ – this is a browser bookmark that instead of taking you to a specific page can instead carry out a function on the page you are currently viewing. In this case the bookmarklet creates a csv file containing the JUSP statistics. It will only work when you are viewing a ‘Issue Entitlement’ page with the JUSP statistics displaying.

The bookmarklet and instructions on how to add it to your browser are available at http://demonstrators.ostephens.com/kbplus/jusp-stats-bookmarklet.html

See below for a short video demonstrating the bookmarklet
