Serials Solutions has announced enhanced functionality for the Serials Solutions® 360 Core e-resource portal, including a tabbed content view for eBooks subscribers, Library Managed Holdings for eBooks, and Japanese-language title sorting options. These upgrades to 360 Core functionality provide access to more content and greater ease of use.
“With this latest round of enhancements for 360 Core, we have answered several of our librarians’ requests,”” says Nicole Pelsinsky, Senior Product Manager for Serials Solutions. “With these enhancements, we are continuing to provide more options for libraries to improve their patrons’ research experience and to support one of our most loyal client bases—Japan.”
A new tabbed view option for eBooks allows Serials Solutions eBooks subscribers to provide discrete “tabs” that represent their content. This allows libraries with extensive eBook collections to present a separate browse and search interface for eBooks and journals, thereby improving their patrons’ research experience.
For additional eBooks coverage, Serials Solutions has further enhanced Library Managed Holdings to enable clients to add library managed eBooks databases that are not tracked in the KnowledgeWorks™ knowledgebase. Libraries can then provide a consolidated search and browse experience for their patrons that encompasses all resources.
To further support international customers, Serials Solutions also has enhanced Japanese language sorting for titles within the e-resource portal and Library Managed Holdings database interface. Now, subscribers can customize Japanese-language sorting and alphabetization options for tracked resources in both patron and client-facing interfaces. This enhancement enables libraries to share Japanese-language resources and correctly sort titles with proper phonetic alphabetization.
