ProQuest Enters Automation Beta Phase

ProQuest entered a beta test phase to automate ebrary and EBL (Ebook Library) holdings updates in its Summon service and 360 discovery and management services.

The automation process means that librarians no longer need to manually load records and set holdings, and it includes automatic updates to data supporting demand-driven acquisition models. This process simplifies access to ebooks in Summon, which works directly with publishers to provide a unified index of search results.

“We are consistently looking for ways to simplify librarians’ tasks by integrating within ProQuest and with other organizations,” says Kevin Sayar, SVP and general manager of ProQuest’s Workflow Solutions. “This initiative has a dual benefit: it relieves the burden for librarians to maintain holdings and also enables more efficient marketing of collections by shortening the time between title availability and its discoverability.”
