2 What we’re going to cover  Introduction to KB+ & it’s Uses  Subscription Information  Licences  Journal Statistics in KB+  Questions/Feedback

3 Background  Usage statistics are increasingly important as a validation for our expenditure on e-resources  Nearly 8m journal articles accessed, 2.7m e-book chapters accessed and 7.7m database searches  Collecting usage data is very time consuming  Jisc were aware of the difficulties for libraries and setup JUSP to provide a single point for some of the bigger e-journal deals (but by no means even close to all). JUSP statistics are fed into KB+  JUSP/KB+ statistics are only for e-journals  Jisc also recognised that libraries have difficulties in keeping track of what journals are included in ‘big deals’ and, as Jisc negotiate these deals, they decided to create KB+ as a tool for librarians.

4 KB+ Uses  Verified, accurate and up-to-date publication information for e-journal agreements. Made available under an open licence and disseminated to organisations including Ex Libris – to ensure SFX (and OU eJournals) is updated with accurate information  Provides Subject Librarians with access to full details of our titles included in journal deals  Gives access to (some) Usage statistics to aid decision making on subscriptions  Provides Librarians with access to licence details so that they know whether articles can be included in course packs / VLE / or used for ILL

5 Getting Started  Go to:  Each User Needs to register by logging in with their Single Sign-on  They can then be accepted for access by a member of the eresources team

6 KB + Subscriptions  Currently lists all our major Ejournal Deals  Each subscription details  start/end dates  Our entitlements (journals included in the deal)  Licence  KB+ has journal titles lists for the NESLi2 deals  And full lists for many publishers that don’t offer NESLi2 deals  Journal Lists are updated throughout the year with any changes to deals/publishers.  Will eventually list all our individual ejournal subscriptions and database subscriptions

8 Licences  Most licences are either Jisc licences or modelled on the Jisc licence.  The Jisc licence is very liberal and designed to favour the institution.  Most licences allow ‘walk-in’ user access.  Those providers that do not allow ‘walk-in’ user access use Shibboleth (SSO) to control access.  Licences are displayed in KB+ in a ‘yes’ ‘no’ format.  Licence terms for Jisc deals have been assessed by Jisc and it is their interpretation.  Other licences are by us but based on the Jisc interpretations

10 Journal Statistics  Report Types  JR1 Number of Successful Full-Text Article Requests by Month and Journal  JR1A Number of Successful Full-Text Article Requests from an Archive by Month and Journal. JR1A is a subset of JR1.  Also newest report s include Open Access usage  JR1A – the period covered varies by publisher e.g. SAGE content prior to 1999, Elsevier content prior to  JR1 is the most widely adopted e-resource report making e- journal reporting more comparable than, for example, database and e-book reporting.  A small number of providers do not provide these reports.  Only JR1 reports are counted for SCONUL.
