Serials Solutions Enhances Its 360 E-Resource Access and Management Services

Serials Solutions (www.serialssolutions.com), a business unit of ProQuest, has announced a new federated search Connection Development Framework for the Serials Solutions 360 Search and WebFeat federated search services. The connection development framework provides developers with new tools and processes to create better, faster, and higher quality connections. For librarians, this means an increased number of resources available by federated search and better search results for patrons.

The company also announced that a new Data Retrieval Service is now available for subscribers to its Serials Solutions 360 Counter e-resource assessment service. The Data Retrieval Service enables librarians to bypass the time-consuming tasks of downloading and correcting vendor data before it can be used for usage reporting and assessment. This means that 360 Counter subscribers can spend more time using data to make more informed collection-development decisions and reduce costs.

Serials Solutions data retrieval specialists collect Project COUNTER-compliant reports from resource vendors, clean up the reports, and then load the corrected data into 360 Counter. Once this data is uploaded, 360 Counter normalizes titles, assigns costs, and formats subject headings. Then, 360 Counter calculates cost-per-click by title, database, subject, and platform and provides the results in customizable report formats. These customizable cost-per-use reports and graphics enable librarians to quickly analyze and assess cost and usage data to give library stakeholders the information they need to make better decisions.
