Library:EResources&Access Documentation Statuses for Knowledgeworks

From UBC Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The statuses in Knowledgeworks are mostly just "tags" and have no effect on the discovery nor access of a resource. The exception is "Not Tracked" which removes a resource from all public discovery & access.

Knowledgeworks statuses at the Database & Title Holdings level are used to Track our resources and indicate current or historical access. Statuses for the Licensing module are dealt with elsewhere.

Statuses are generally set at the Database level. If they need to be set differently at the Holding (Title) level, then the box “We subscribe to only some of the titles in this database” needs to be ticked at the Database level first, then statuses can be set at the Title level.

NOTE: Statuses display accurately only in the -Data Management- display, -Provider Details- display, -Database Details- display and -Holding Details- display. In the -Holdings List- and in -Search Results- they are only displayed as Tracked / Not Tracked.

Discovery & Linking (Visibility on the Public Side)

For all statuses except Not Tracked, a ticked “Display in…” box means the resource will appear in that public display (some conditions apply). Un-ticking a box removes the resource from view for that display tool.

Boxes that can be ticked are:

  • 360 Core – the ejournal Portal
  • 360 Link – the Citation Linker
  • 360 MARC Updates – generator of MARC records from Serials Solutions for the Catalogue
  • Summon – the overarching Discovery tool
  • Use database-level (custom or default) URL only for all titles in this database [almost never used]
  • Omit proxy from this database
  • We subscribe to only some of the titles in this database
  • Database List – an overlooked list within the 360 Core Administration Console (only important at a Database level) that activates/deactivates automatically for Subscribed/Not Tracked <= not really relevant to our usage of the Serials Solutions Suite

Overlap Analysis can be done for Journal resources with any status other than “Not Tracked”.

Data on Demand => all resources with a Status of something other than “Not Tracked”, and with the Display In 360 Core box ticked, will appear by default in a Data on Demand report.

Data Summary counts all Databases/Titles regardless of status. Only "Not Tracked" databases are not counted.

Intota Assessment includes stats provided in reports even if Title is “Not Tracked”.

Resource Statuses in Use

NOTE: in all statuses where 360 MARC Updates are said to be “ticked”, the exceptions are those resources where MARC records come from a source other than Serials Solutions (ex. titles Firm Ordered via YBP or certain Gale Databases).

NOTE: “Omit proxy from this database” is assumed to be un-ticked unless mentioned. The “We subscribe to only some of the titles in this database” will depend on the nature of the collection (ie all titles or only some in a Database)

Subscribed (used at Database & Title level):

  • Use only for current, active subscriptions
  • Tick – 360 Core, 360 Link, 360 MARC Updates (exception is certain resources where we get records from the vendor), Summon
  • Tick exception is for certain Library Specific Holdings Databases listing non-online items (ie Print & Microform). For those, tick on 360 Core only
  • Insert temporary Permission Button “License to be Analyzed” in Public All Titles Note Box (Database level) or Public Note (Title level) and notify Licensing

Purchased (c) (used at the Database level):

  • Used for purchased resources (they may or may not have continuing fees)
  • Tick – 360 Core, 360 Link, 360 MARC Updates (exception is certain resources where we get records from the vendor), Summon
  • Insert temporary Permission Button “License to be Analyzed” in Public All Titles Note Box (Database level) or Public Note (Title level) and notify Licensing

Freely Available (c) (used at the Database Level):

  • Used for resources available to anyone regardless of a subscription or purchase (a title that is “free” because of a subscription to something else is not “Freely Available (c)”
  • Tick – 360 Core, 360 Link, 360 MARC Updates (exception is certain “free” Databases where titles are unstable and change frequently), Summon
  • Tick – Omit Proxy from this database
  • Insert Permission Button “Freely Accessible Resource”

  • Use this for Trials Public (open to patrons – has a Resource page) or Private (only invitees have access)
  • If Public:
    • Tick for Display – 360 Core, 360 Link, Summon
    • Leave off – 360 MARC Updates

Expired (c) (used at Database level):
