What do I use KB+ for?

Our new web pages can be found at  – http://www.jisc-collections.ac.uk/KnowledgeBasePlus/Help/FAQs/

KB+ is a service to manage your subscriptions and licences, or both of these together, especially in relation to electronic resources.

KB+ stores accurate title lists with holdings of a number of content providers

Among other things, you can use KB+ to

  • Build up and compare historical title lists of your deals/packages across the years
  • Compare packages and where individual titles are represented in different collections
  • Show title changes and how a title moves between collections
  • Attach documents and notes on licenses and subscriptions
  • Store your institutional licenses.

KB+ is not only a piece of software.  KB+ is a community-based service. It works as a central representative for library customers, liaising with publishers for accurate lists and provide these lists to link resolver vendors.
