EBSCONET Subscription Management

Your e-resource solution.

Assisting librarians with the acquisition and management of electronic subscriptions is a natural extension of the print subscription service we've provided for more than 65 years. Streamline these extra steps with EBSCO's Services for Electronic Subscription Management and help your library allocate its human and fiscal resources in smarter ways.

Benefits:

    • Organize tasks with a clear overview of publisher offers and pricing models.
    • Superior customer service to help with all your print and electronic subscription-based needs.
    • A single contact for orders, payments, claims and renewals saves time and money by eliminating multiple publisher contacts and administrative work.
    • Comprehensive reports assist with collection development and budgeting.

EBSCO Usage Consolidation

EBSCO Usage Consolidation — EBSCO’s easy-to-use, cost-effective tool for managing usage data — will help you:

    • Collect, consolidate, and report on usage data related to your online collection.
    • Manage COUNTER-compliant usage for all of your e-resources, regardless of vendor, via a single interface.
    • Access usage data automatically at your point of need — in your EBSCONET® Subscription Management account.

EBSCONET Analytics

EBSCONET Analytics allows EBSCONET Subscription Management users to have instant access to the data you need to quickly evaluate your EBSCO collection by putting key decision-making data directly into the application where you manage your subscriptions.

EBSCO Usage Consolidation subscribers have the additional benefit of seeing overall title usage and cost-per-use details—both at the individual title level and in the context of your other e-journal subscriptions.

    • View cost-per-use data for the current year and prior years.
    • Compare the performance of various e-packages.
    • Identify your most- and least-used resources.

EBSCO SmartLinks+

When a library subscribes to e-journals via EBSCO and one or more databases on the EBSCOhost Research Databases platform or EBSCO Discovery Service, SmartLinks+ can be automatically enabled. With a vast amount of continuously updated article-level metadata for e-journal subscribers, SmartLinks+ ensure that users have seamless access to their online subscriptions without the need to route through a link resolver.

Benefits:

    • Provide faster access to full-text for end users by reducing the number of steps to access content from publishers.
    • Reduce your maintenance costs by eliminating the need to use Open URL standards for subscribed titles.
    • Maximize your budget dollars by centralizing access points for your subscription e-journals and subscription databases.
