KBUpdate reports

 ExLibris will be changing the maintenance scripts so more than 3 weeks of data is retained  Two sessions (LANL and MIT)  How to manage weekly reports?

 HTML vs TXT reports

LANL Hints

 Use TXT reports  Maintains separate spreadsheets by active targets for each KBUpdate  Reorder information for ease of use (ie thresholds  Add notes when maintaining KB  Always look at Delete Object Portfolio  Especially for pick and choose targets


 Troublespots   Lines blurring between Open Access and licensed content Multiple targets for the title  Global threshold closed  What happened to the title?

MIT approach

 Library staff want to view KBUpdate reports as EXCEL not text  Don’t always remember to protect the OBJID when converting from txt to xls


   Wrote PERL scripts to do conversion  Insert object type (Book; Journal; etc)  Color code to highlight changes Different conversion rules for New; Changed and Deleted reports Will share scripts via EL Commons

CDL approach ?

 What can the CDL do to help the campuses deal with the weekly KBUpdate reports?


Q: Have any campuses activated ebooks in UC-eLinks?

A: Yes, including CDL who has activated all packages we license including IEEE, Springer, Wiley.

Q: Who needs to be involved in rolling out the new ebook search on campuses?

A: campus e-resource team will select ebook packages to include (e.g., ILL staff, reference librarians, e-resource librarians, public service staff). Library webmaster will determine where the search lives on the library website. CDL will work with Ellen Meltzer and the UC-eLinks project team to make sure the word gets out to the UC-eLinks liaisons and other campus stakeholders.
