Serials Solutions Partners With Springshare LibGuides

Serials Solutions (www.serialssolutions.com) announced its partnership with Springshare (http://springshare.com), the maker of LibGuides. Together, they will provide the first ERAMS-based LibGuides integration, enabling common subscribers to create LibGuides A-Z lists powered by the e-resource data of Serials Solutions KnowledgeWorks knowledgebase. Serials Solutions and Springshare worked with beta partners at the State University of New York-Westchester Community College, Grand Valley State University, Palm Beach Atlantic University, and Mississippi State University to test the integration of KnowledgeWorks data into LibGuides.

"Serials Solutions and Springshare are passionate about delivering compelling end user experiences," says Marc Bertone, head of development at Springshare. "We've partnered with Serials Solutions through KnowledgeWorks to incorporate the most accurate and complete knowledgebase of electronic resources into the LibGuides experience." Springshare now uses the KnowledgeWorks XML API to incorporate authoritative e-resource information into LibGuides so that librarians can share their resource data through a robust, Web 2.0 user interface. View a video demonstration of the new KnowledgeWorks powered LibGuides (www.serialssolutions.com/assets/publications/KnowledgeWorks-Powers-LibGuides.mp4; QuickTime, 4.5MB).

The minimum requirement to enable this feature is a subscription to LibGuides and Serials Solutions 360 services or the Summon service, which include the KnowledgeWorks knowledgebase. There is no additional charge for integrating KnowledgeWorks data with LibGuides. Existing customers of both Serials Solutions services and Springshare LibGuides can enable this free service by contacting Springshare.
