China Four databases from Wanfang Data now Indexed in EBSCO Discovery ServiceTM - 24 Jan 2017

EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and Wanfang Data have announced a new agreement to give researchers access to scholarly information from China through EBSCO Discovery Service™ (EDS). Metadata from four Chinese databases that contain more than 35 million records of journal articles, dissertations and conference papers is now available in EDS, the world's most-used research discovery tool.

Wanfang Data is a leading provider of electronic resources for Chinese studies, and indexes content from some of the most important published resources on Chinese culture, medicine, business, science and engineering. The databases that are now available are: China Local Gazetteers: nearly 27,000 Chinese gazetteer books published after 1949 that cover geographic and historic records of provinces and autonomous regions in China; China Online Journals: more than 2.4 million records for more than 7,700 core journals in China in a variety of disciplines; Dissertations of China: 2.7 million records for dissertations and Master's theses from Chinese research institutions from 1980 – to date; and Academic Conferences in China: 2.8 million records from conferences held in China since 1986.

According to Peter Kung, EBSCO Information Services Vice-President of Sales for Greater China, the agreement allows academic libraries to provide more Chinese resources to researchers.

US Washington and Lee University selects Ex Libris Alma and Primo - 24 Jan 2017

Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, has announced that Washington and Lee University (W&L) has selected the Ex Libris Alma® library management service and the Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery platform. The University is the eighth institution in Virginia to adopt both solutions.

Replacing the Innovative Millennium library system, Alma and Primo will increase workflow efficiencies, improve analytics to support collection development and decision making, and allow W&L to leverage the Ex Libris open API environment to provide additional services to the Washington and Lee community.

Washington and Lee's University Library, which consists of an undergraduate library, a science library, and a law library, must accommodate disparate research needs and expectations. W&L chose the Alma and Primo solutions because they support these different needs in ways that other systems do not. In particular, Alma and Primo will provide a unified system for managing electronic resources together with other material types without affecting the discoverability of the libraries' extensive print collections.

A major factor in W&L's decision to adopt Alma and Primo was their software-as-a-service model, which lowers maintenance costs and spares libraries from having to do regular updates and backups. Instead, library staff can focus on their areas of expertise, including electronic resource management, acquisitions, and cataloging.

The selection of Primo will enable the law library to maintain a customized search interface that differs from that of the undergraduate library. The sophisticated yet intuitive Primo search interface will give W&L faculty and students easy access to both print and electronic resources.
