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