Techniques for Tracking Perpetual Access

667 views

Published on

I conducted a survey in 2013 to determine whether libraries were tracking their perpetual access entitlements, but it did not thoroughly explore how librarians were managing this process. This program will build on that survey and explore specific techniques for tracking perpetual access. The session will focus on commonly used systems as identified in my survey, including integrated library systems, electronic resource management systems, OpenURL knowledgebases, and spreadsheets. The program will discuss what information should be tracked, how best to leverage different sorts of systems, and how to address challenges identified in previous research. These recommendations will be developed through correspondence and interviews with other professionals, as well as the existing literature and best practices.

  5. 5. Does your library systematically track perpetual access for electronic journals? http://www.siue.edu/~cbulock/poster.html
  6. 6. Why Track? Influence renewal decisions Influence print decisions Easily provide access when necessary Publishers may not be doing it Trigger events may go unnoticed
  7. 7. Scenarios  A library has a subscription to a journal that ceases publication  A subscription to a journal is canceled by a library  A subscription to a journal is sold or transferred to another publisher  The publisher of a journal, or bundle of journals, goes out of business  A bundle of journals has a fluid title list  The publisher of a bundle of journals is bought completely or partially by another publisher  A subscription to a bundle of journals is canceled or not renewed by a library or consortium -Waller and Bird (2006)
  8. 8. Additional Scenarios A publisher of a journal switches from one content platform to another A purchased book is replaced with a new edition DualD FlipFlop http://bit.ly/1kUKb8D
  9. 9. A subscription to a journal is canceled by a library • Determine whether PA available at all • Determine what years are available • Adjust holdings info wherever it lives (ERM, ILS, Link Resolver)
  10. 10. A library has a subscription to a journal that ceases publication • Find out it has ceased – Usually at renewal time • Determine what remains available • Add an end date to holdings – Possibly adjust beginning date
  11. 11. A subscription to a journal is sold or transferred to another publisher • Receive notification from publisher, listserv, or TRANSFER • Determine what will go where and make the relevant changes to holdings (or wait for global changes to take affect in KB)
  12. 12. The publisher of a journal, or bundle of journals, goes out of business • Activate archiving provisions if available • ? CLOSED
  13. 13. A publisher of a journal switches from one content platform to another • Determine what perpetual access you had on old platform • Determine if active on new platform – Notify new platform if not • Adjust provider/access information
  14. 14. What do you need to know? If there is perpetual access in the license If post cancellation access requires a fee If publisher would allow for archiving, self-hosting, or alternatives Formats provided Whether the publisher participates in TRANSFER, LOCKSS, CLOCKSS, Portico
  15. 15. What else? If PA would apply for all issues accessible during agreement, issues published during agreement, or something else In a package: if it applies to all journals or a subset For books: what happens in case of new edition
  16. 16. What system(s) do you use to track journal perpetual access? http://www.siue.edu/~cbulock/poster.html
  17. 17. ERM Strategies • Tracking license information – Dedicated fields in license module if available – Track more than yes/no if relevant • Tracking current status of resource – Current/Perpetual/Extinct
  18. 18. ERM Strategies • Title level – Holdings will be most relevant – Wrinkles include title changes, year-to- year title list variations – Represented as local dates/holdings in global package or as a library-specific package – ERM KB may feed directly to other systems – If perpetual and current grouped under one provider, mark perpetual
  19. 19. ERM example
  20. 20. ILS Strategies • Marie Kennedy. Sierra: http://orgmonkey.net/?p=1651#sthas h.fQGCv14d.KOMSCVNc.dpbs • Bib records at item level – Perpetual access holdings, possibly suppressed until needed • Bib record for package with local notes field • Item category for Portico titles
  21. 21. ILS Strategies • Acquisitions module – Order records include PA note – Invoice records include access info • May just reference order history without any special PA information
  22. 22. ILS Example
  23. 23. Spreadsheet Strategies • One giant sheet, or broken down by provider • Sheets for Big Deals may be updated yearly to reflect fluidity of title list • Many keep a spreadsheet for individual purchases • Often an intermediary step
  24. 24. Spreadsheet Example
  25. 25. Resolver KB Strategies • May be used solely for access or also for tracking • Options – Separate packages for different PA statuses – Separate package for actively PA items – Stick with global package, but add local holdings as needed
  26. 26. Resolver KB Example
  27. 27. Other Systems • Subscription agent platforms • Platform administrator modules • Local databases • Paper copies of invoices
  28. 28. Potential Obstacles Publisher doesn’t comply with PIE-J, lumps former titles with new titles, deletes former from KBs Transfer occurs and new publisher decides not to honor PA Contracts that are silent, terms that change
