EBSCONET offers greater licence details to better serve librarians -

Journal subscription services provider EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO), US, recently announced that the company has broadened the offerings of its e-service platform, EBSCONET, to provide detailed information about publisher licence agreements. This eliminates the need to navigate numerous publisher sites to locate licence data.

Doing away with the need to develop and manage desktop spreadsheets and databases, the new 'licence details' feature provides instant answers to commonly asked questions as well as dozens more not so common. While following the E-Resource Management Initiative (ERMI) guidelines in collecting licence data, EBSCO has identified, with significant input from customers, a manageable list of 50 key data elements to display on EBSCONET. As a result, librarians can view a standardised version of the terms and conditions of use in various publisher licence agreements and link directly to the agreements themselves.

With its value-added approach to e-resource management, the licence details feature is seen to remove much of the burden of researching licence information, saving librarians time and frustration while helping them make informed purchasing decisions.
