Grappling with PQ Ebook Central Integration

    Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation only

    Abstract

    The Proquest Ebook Central Inegration profile was first made available in Alma in early 2018. This was an attractive functionality for Charles Sturt University Library as the University Library has a huge collection (almost 45,000 titles as of May 2019). Running this would mean getting rid of the monthly manual updates for deleting and updating titles in the collection. However, testing in Sandbox was unsuccessful for almost a year as the job never finished properly. The case raised with ExLibris went to development many times with the assurance that it would be fixed in the next monthly release. Finally, it was fixed for us in Sandbox in March 2019. After thorough testing in Sandbox, this was moved to production but it was not plain sailing. It had its issues that we slowly started to unfold. In this presentation I talked about the experiences so far, and how we have tried to make this work for us.
