Community resource responding to what people want Working closely with libraries to understand how JUSP is being used and how it can help decision-making Developing new reports and features from user feedback Working with publishers to provide benefits to the community http://www.flickr.com/photos/the_approximate_photographer/5543746890/ Community engagement

Aims: To gather, normalise and verify the entitlement records of all UK higher education institutions to the titles in the NESLi2 deals with two sample publishers. To scope the cost and work flows for gathering, normalisation and verification of entitlement records of all UK higher education institutions across all of the NESLi2 publishers. To scope the cost and work flow for updating the entitlement records for all UK higher education institutions to all NESLi2 publishers on an annual basis. Entitlement Registry Scoping Project
The project is closely aligned with a separate and parallel strand of activity led by EDINA.EDINA Prototype designed by EDINA.

Institutional Processes When do the libraries verify their PCA entitlement? As part of the subscription or renewal process As part of the cancellation process As part of the general management of the collection How do libraries source entitlement information? How is entitlement information stored?
Data normalisation Data received: – Publishers journal title identifiers – Bibliographic information – PCA entitlement – Publisher – Title changes – Open access (oa)
We have sent data to be verified by institutions Fields: Jnl Code Subscription Code Print ISSN Online ISSN Frequency (2011 Journal Title Journal Pack PCA entitlement Start Year PCA entitlement End Year Former Publisher Transfered?

Preliminary findings The publishers were unable to provide the data in a timely and systematic manner Some institutions found it very difficult to verify their entitlements. In general, the time factor has been and is one of the main reasons why it is so difficult for publishers and institutions to deal with the PCA entitlement data.
A developing approach Issues above demonstrate importance of Entitlement Registry Balance costs of collecting historical data vs practicality of starting with current data The Entitlement Registry likely to be based on a two-pronged strategy – continue working to find the best workflow regarding the historical data 2011-backwards – start keeping records of the data from 2012-forward
