Event description

Description

2017 marks 5 years since KB+ was launched. Jisc has worked with the community to develop a new system which has changed the electronic resources management landscape.

Users find clear benefits in using KB+ as a time saving and comprehensive solution to manage licence and subscription information.

Listening closely to community and as a result of their feedback, today KB+ includes;

  • ERM functionalities giving you the opportunity to manage your electronic resources using controlled, timely and accurate data. All KB+ modules are built to provide entitlement management tools

  • Data management own processes, conventions and tools. Metadata is managed to provide comprehensive information for entitlement management including current and post cancellation holdings

  • Metadata corrections, updates and additions suggested by the community are investigated by a team of metadata experts.

  • Shareable information from KB+ via downloads and different user profiles.

  • An extensive offering of training and support to KB+ users

  • Represenation of KB+ in relevant Niso metadata working groups.

  • Use of KB+ internationally and by the majority of system vendors.

In 2017, we are embracing new challenges and continuing to develop a comprehensive service to the community;

  • KB+ User Interface is being designed by a team of usability experts with a close feedback from the community.

  • KB+ has started to include EBooks metadata for Jisc Collections agreements with the aim to provide a reasonably useful set of data for entitlement management.

  • KB+ Finance Module to be launched and include cost per use calculations.

So come celebrate, we will have drinks and nibbles. You can hear more about what KB+ can offer and get a sneak preview of our new upcoming KB+ User interface from;

  • Liam Earney, Director of Jisc Collections

  • Richard Parson, Director, Library and Learning Centre, University of Dundee

  • Dr. Max Hammond, KB+ User Interface Project Manager, Sero Consulting
