Poland Elsevier and Polish Universities Consortia Leader ICM in deal to provide nation-wide university access to SciVal - 23 Feb 2018

Elsevier, the global information analytics business specialising in science and health, announced its agreement with the Polish Universities Consortia Leader, Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM), to provide nation-wide university access to SciVal, Elsevier's analytics solution to track and measure research performance.

Access to SciVal will enable university leaders and managers across Polish universities to analyse and visualise bibliometric research data for 8,500 research institutions across 220 nations. This supports them in their strategic planning, research assessment reviews and allows for tracking research performance and comparing with other institutions worldwide.

SciVal runs primarily on data from Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of research information, covering more than 70 million articles, books and conference papers, and draws its content from more than 5,000 publishers covering 23,000 journals. SciVal also includes usage measures from both ScienceDirect and Scopus, patent-article citations, awarded grants and media mentions.

Access for the Polish scholarly community will be managed by the Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM) at the University of Warsaw.

Scopus and SciVal are part of Elsevier's Research Intelligence portfolio, its offering of solutions which support the three pillars of strategic research management: to enable, conduct and share research.

Switzerland Karger Publishers participates in Google's CASA Initiative to enhance access for students - 23 Feb 2018

Medical and scientific publisher Karger Publishers has announced that it will take part in Google's Campus Activated Subscriber Access Initiative (CASA), enabling off-campus access to subscribed Karger content for university members.

Karger Publishers participates in Google's CASA Initiative, making subscribed Karger content available to university members wherever they are. CASA is activated automatically when users are connected to the university network. To maintain this service, users have to reconnect to the university network every 30 days.

This collaboration with Google is an important advance which streamlines access to purchased Karger content for authorised library users. Using Google CASA requires no extra work for set-up or maintenance for subscribing institutions. These institutions are still able to adhere to license agreements and copyright laws, as Google CASA provides legitimate off-campus access to scientific articles.

US The University of Texas of the Permian Basin selects Ex Libris Alma library services platform - 23 Feb 2018

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that the University of Texas of the Permian Basin (UTPB) has selected the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform to integrate with the university's Ex Libris Summon® discovery and delivery service. This decision comes as an increasing number of libraries in the University of Texas system elect to use the Alma platform, making it easier for the consortium to work with a standardized and proven technology infrastructure.

The Alma-Summon combination will provide strong synergy between the back-office management of resources and patron-facing discovery of, and access to, scholarly resources needed for learning, teaching, and research. The Alma platform will replace the school's Innovative Interfaces Sierra integrated library system.

By streamlining the management of electronic and print resources, UTPB plans to raise staff productivity significantly, improve workflows, and optimize resource use by applying data received through Alma analytics. The University also anticipates greater sharing across campus-wide systems, enabling them to connect to student management and bursar systems, among others. Taking advantage of the Ex Libris open-platform philosophy, the library will be able to connect to other university systems via APIs, collaborate with other libraries via consortial networks, and benefit from extensions contributed by an energetic customer base.

In its evaluation of products that met UTPB's selection requirements, the University noted the Alma platform's core functionality, interoperability, and easy integration with Summon discovery.

US OCLC unveils 'Syndeo,' a suite of services designed to facilitate national and regional library collaboration - 23 Feb 2018

OCLC is introducing SyndeoTM, a flexible suite of services specifically designed to facilitate national and regional library collaboration.

Syndeo, which means 'I connect' in Greek, supports OCLC cooperative cataloging, resource sharing and library management services necessary to run individual institutions along with the technology and infrastructure required of a national library.

Syndeo provides improved efficiencies with support for in-region workflows, including authority file management and copy cataloguing from more than 400 million records in WorldCat, the world's most comprehensive global network of data about library collections and services. Syndeo offers greater visibility of regional collections to searchers worldwide by registering collections in WorldCat. And the suite reduces maintenance costs with a new, state-of-the-art infrastructure.

Many national libraries and strategic library organigations around the world currently use OCLC services to facilitate collaboration. For instance, Library and Archives Canada (LAC) recently launched Voilà, Canada's new National Union Catalogue that will make the country's documentary heritage more widely accessible and available to library users in Canada and around the world through WorldCat. Later this year, LAC will begin implementing OCLC WorldShare Management Services as its library services platform to manage its collection.

Syndeo brings together metadata management services that support regional workflows as well as resource sharing, discovery and other services into one suite that can be customised to meet the needs of specific regional groups or national libraries.

Syndeo runs on the OCLC WorldShare platform, a global, interconnected web architecture that provides an environment for managing activities and delivering services as well as providing an access point through which libraries connect to WorldCat.
