Ex Libris Group Collaborates on E-Resource Management

Ex Libris Group partnered with Jisc to enhance e-resource management for U.K. libraries. Their collaboration is designed to help academic libraries improve efficiency by continually updating data from Jisc’s Knowledge Base+ (KB+) to Ex Libris Group’s SFX OpenURL link resolver and KnowledgeBase and the Ex Libris Alma library services framework.

KB+ is a recently launched community service for U.K. academic institutions that helps librarians manage titles and packages of digital content negotiated on behalf of several consortia. By integrating KB+ tasks such as data verification, normalization, and updates into Ex Libris Group’s automation solutions, librarians “will achieve significant time savings and greater accuracy in their e-resource collections,” according to David Beychok, VP of discovery and delivery solutions at Ex Libris Group.

“Because details of e-resource packages from the cooperating consortia will be centrally managed and freely available under a CC0 license, we will be able to streamline the delivery of information about the contents of e-resource packages, for the benefit of library staff and end users,” says Liam Earney, project director of KB+.
