Updated 9th October: Draft Agenda now available
The Jisc SafeNet project aims to improve assured continuity of access for UK higher education institutions to the electronic journal articles for which they have paid. The two-year project runs until July 2016 after which Jisc and EDINA plan to launch a national service based on the project outputs. To learn more about the project and its goals, please visit http://safenet.blogs.edina.ac.uk.
There are two key components to SafeNet: an entitlement registry based on actionable data that acts as an authority during post-cancellation access requests, and UK based infrastructure for storing local copies of journals to provide long-term resilience. The project is developing this infrastructure to host a UK collection of archived journals and clarify continuing access rights through an entitlement registry of subscription histories. The project focus is to simplify the route to a working copy when there is no active subscription or when access from the publisher ceases.
This briefing event is open to all interested members of the HE library community and will provide an overview of the project as well as progress to date. Discussion will focus on the entitlement registry component to assist the project team in understanding the challenges related to gathering and managing entitlement data. We would like to discuss how a registry of entitlement could help in your routine workflows (e.g. cancellation exercises, annual reviews etc.), what data you currently have and how the project team can produce a user friendly service that benefits the community as a whole.
