Israel Ex Libris Alma Mobile app now available for Apple iOS and Google Android devices - 15 Dec 2016

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced the release of Ex Libris Alma® Mobile. The new app enables librarians to work with the Alma service quickly and easily while on the go.

Alma Mobile provides Pick Up From Shelf functionality, significantly enhancing librarians' productivity by allowing them to take the Alma service to the stacks. In addition, librarians can use their mobile device's built-in camera to scan in items directly from the app.

Alma Mobile was designed as a component of the Ex Libris strategy to improve library efficiency. By simplifying librarians’ daily routine, Alma Mobile frees them to focus on bringing more value to the library, its users, and the entire organisation.

The Ex Libris community was deeply involved in the creation of Alma Mobile. Colorado School of Mines, Macquarie University, the University of Sheffield, and other customers helped shape the features and functionality of the app.

Alma Mobile will now become a standard component of the Alma product road map, and the feature list will be routinely increased as an integral part of future Alma releases.

Netherland ACCUCOMS signs first Agggregagent deal with the Microbiology Society - 15 Dec 2016

ACCUCOMS has announced the signing of the very first Agggregagent deal with the Microbiology Society, a membership organisation for scientists who work in all areas of microbiology.

The new deal, which commences on the January 1, 2017, marks the inclusion of the Microbiology Society's journal products within the Aggregagent. The Aggregagent is the new product for selling high-quality subject specific collections into libraries. The deal also sees the Microbiology Society's Open Access (OA) titles included. While there is no charge for libraries, inclusion in the Aggregagent will help libraries select and catalogue key OA titles and aid both discoverability and usage.

The Aggregagent is a new way of thinking about subscription sales. For the publisher, it means a way of maximising visibility and revenue for its established titles, and a real pathway to the market for new titles. It also means significant flexibility in the sales model and control over the model in each region, without compromise. For the library, it means the convenience of the big deal, but with significant choice about the collections. It also means a single invoice, a single license, convenient customer service as well as centralized access setup.

UK Future Science Group partners with Publons to recognise peer reviewers - 15 Dec 2016

Publisher Future Science Group has announced a partnership with Publons, a website that allows experts to track, verify and receive recognition for every peer review they perform, a vital service that often goes unrecognised.

Peer review of journal articles is a vital step in the publication process, underpinning the quality of published work. However, the blinded nature of peer review often limits reviewers from receiving full credit for the work they have performed. In addition, experts often perform reviews for a wide array of different journals and publishing companies, making it hard to keep track of all their efforts.

Publons was set up in 2012 to help address this problem. Experts who join the site are able to add the reviews they have performed to a verified profile in a format they can include in promotion and funding applications, thereby allowing formal recognition for the work they have completed.

By partnering with Publons, Future Science Group reviewers will benefit from a seamless integration via ScholarOne Manuscripts, the submission and peer review system from Clarivate Analytics – allowing reviewers to opt-in to Publons with a simple check box during the review process, which allows reviews to be automatically verified and added to their Publons profile with no extra work for the reviewers. Reviewers who aren't yet members will also be able to easily join up and add their review.

US Data Conversion Laboratory to digitise over two million pages for the Bureau of Economic Analysis - 15 Dec 2016

Data Conversion Laboratory (DCL), industry leader in converting content into digital formats, is currently providing digitisation services to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) through the Library of Congress' (LOC) Federal Library and Information Network (FEDLINK) program.

Over two million pages of various types of internal documents that serve as valuable research materials for the agency's staff are being digitised to make them more searchable and accessible. This months-long project will include OCR processing, generation of metadata, digitisation of microforms, maps, posters, and computer print-outs, to name just a few processes in this highly complex venture.

As an agency of the US Department of Commerce, the BEA, through research and analysis, strives to help the American public understand the performance of the Nation's economy. Thusly, the integrity and accessibility of research materials used for this essential work are of paramount importance.

Another notable aspect to this partnership is the fact that it is done through the LOC/FEDLINK program. FEDLINK offers centralised acquisition services for the federal library and information center community, as well as to other federal agencies and offices, including those in the District of Columbia.

Projects awarded from the FEDLINK program are guided by the highest professional standards, guidelines, and best practices. DCL's 35 years of experience and integrity in content conversion met and exceeded the high level of expectations for such valuable work.
