360 Core is an ideal solution for libraries seeking an affordable set of foundational access, management, and assessment services to improve workflows and reduce workloads. An attractive entry-level option to automate and centralize e-resource management, 360 Core provides tools for collection control and easy access to e-resources. Instead of wrangling data and duplicating processes, you can spend your time providing better access, making more informed decisions, and reducing costs.

New Google Scholar Button and 360 Link Add Value to Library Collections

As much as we’d like it if researchers always started their research via the library’s website, we know that’s just not the case. Increasingly, researchers are beginning out on the open Web and then will sometimes find their way (or, unfortunately not) to library resources. A new browser plug-in from Google Scholar makes accessing library collections from any web page a whole lot easier.
