Intota Debuts Workflow Feature; NSA Docs Go Digital
Intota, ProQuest’s library services platform, introduced a workflow feature called My Intota, which gives librarians “a central point for managing the broad range of tasks associated with e-resources …” and streamlines their day-to-day collection management workflow, according to its introductory PDF.
My Intota’s Activities workspace helps libraries manage their e-resources by centralizing all collection management notifications. Its Databases workspace aggregates all of a library’s subscription databases into an easy-to-manage list. These workspaces are accessible via a single interface that includes multiple filtering capabilities along with the option to view expanded details relevant to a specific task.
In other news, ProQuest announced the digitization of documents related to the National Security Agency (NSA), including those leaked by Edward Snowden, responses to Snowden’s disclosure, and explorations of the history of electronic surveillance. The Digital National Security Archive (DNSA), created by ProQuest and the National Security Archive, will feature these materials in its upcoming collection, Electronic Surveillance and the National Security Agency: From Shamrock to Snowden.
