NETLIBRARY UPDATES

  • NetLibrary Collection Tops 100,000 Titles
  • NetLibrary Shared Collections, New Consortia Purchase Requirements
  • Setting up your NetLibrary Collection for Success - Providing Users with Remote Access and more
NetLibrary Collection Tops 100,000 Titles

NetLibrary made history in November by becoming the first eContent provider to offer academic, public, special and school library users access to more than 100,000 full-text eBook and eAudiobook titles.

The 100,000th title, Growth and Empowerment, Making Development Happen, by Nicholas Stern, Jean-Jacques Dethier and F. Halsey Rogers, is published by The MIT Press (2005) and presents a new strategy for growing economies in the developing world.

NetLibrary continues to expand its catalog by offering a growing collection of eBooks, eAudiobooks, eJournals and subject-specific databases from leading publishers worldwide. More than 20,000 new titles have been loaded in 2005 alone.

NetLibrary's catalog includes the latest information technology titles, reference essentials, business and economics resources, best-selling fiction titles and more. NetLibrary continually adds different types of eContent to its catalog to further its objective of helping libraries meet the digital demands of its users.

NetLibrary Shared Collections, New Consortia Purchase Requirements

NetLibrary offers libraries the most extensive and cost effective consortia buying program. As the breadth and reach of the consortia buying program expand, we continue to review the economics of consortia programs in order to provide an equitable balance among exposure of the content, compensation to authors and publishers, and access to library users.

Effective January 1, the NetLibrary Consortia Purchase program was modified toward this end goal. Groups will now need to purchase multiple copies of the eBooks for their shared collections, based on the number of libraries in the group. In return, the participating libraries will have corresponding concurrent, simultaneous access to the eBooks in their shared collections equivalent to the number of copies purchased under this program.

The staff at OCLC realizes that these changes outlined below represent a price increase. Fortunately, even with this price increase, the NetLibrary Shared Collections model continues to represent the most economical way for libraries to gain access to eBooks for their users.

We have included some details about the program below.

When will the new model go into effect?

To help with the transition, the model will be implemented in two phases, effective on January 1 and July 1. As these changes are implemented, your OCLC Library Services representative will continue to work with you to find the best solution for your group's specific needs.

How many copies will we need to purchase?

The number of copies required will be based on the number of libraries participating in the shared collection, as outlined below:
 
Number of Libraries in
group/consortia
Phase I
January 1
Phase II
July 1
2 - 15 2 copies of each title 2 copies of each title
16 - 30 3 copies of each title 4 copies of each title
31 - 50 4 copies of each title 6 copies of each title
50+ Quote Quote

What access fees are required?
NetLibrary access fees will apply only to the first copy of each title. Access fees will not be charged on additional copies.

Who should I contact for more information?
If you have additional questions about these changes, please email a member of the Network Services Department or phone 402-471-2045 or 800-307-2665.

Setting up your NetLibrary Collection for Success - Providing Users with Remote Access and more

Do your users need to come into the physical library to access NetLibrary eBooks or eAudiobooks? No, they can have access to your NetLibrary collection from their personal desktop if they have already set up a NetLibrary account, or if you have enabled remote authentication.

There are several different options for providing remote access, including:

  • Secure Referring URL
  • IP address recognition through proxy server
  • NetLibrary user account
The appropriate solution for each library is different, so to find out what option is right for you, please contact OCLC's Customer Service Department at 800-848-5800 or email support@oclc.org or email a member of the Network Services Department or phone 402-471-2045 or 800-307-2665.

Once remote authentication has been set up, your users can search for and view eBooks and preview eAudiobooks without coming into the physical library. In order to checkout eBooks, download eAudiobooks or use personalization features such as notes, users will have to have a NetLibrary user account which they can create from anywhere if your library has setup remote authentication.

Remote authentication is just one key to maximizing the success of your NetLibrary collection. To learn more about other important tips to make NetLibrary as effective as possible for your library, view the new, prerecorded Success Guide Webinars at http://www.oclc.org/netlibrary/support/successguide/.

NEBRASKA LIBRARY COMMISSION FUNDING REQUEST

The Nebraska Library Commission recently submitted a mid-biennium appropriation request for $325,000 in additional funds. The Legislature's Appropriation Committee reviewed the proposed budget and has recommended the funds be included in the final budget.

The funds will be used to license subscription online information services for statewide access through the NebraskAccess program. Subscriptions would include an online encyclopedia, plus additional online information resources aimed at children in grades K-8.

The Nebraska Library Commission is requesting these funds in response to a pending change to the Department of Education's Rule 10, which pertains to school library media resources. This rule change will require all schools to have at least one encyclopedia set available in either print format or electronic format networked for simultaneous access, with copyright dates in the past five years.

The Nebraska Library Commission already provides statewide access to a number of online subscription resources through its NebraskAccess program. Adding an online encyclopedia to NebraskAccess, licensed for statewide use, would be an efficient and cost-effective means of helping schools meet the new requirements set by the State Board of Education.

The Governor did not include the Commission's request in the budget he submitted to the Legislature in mid-January. The Nebraska Library Commission's hearing on the request was on January 31. The Appropriations Committee will review the Governor's budget and make its own recommendations. A final vote of the Legislature will likely occur in April.

If you have questions about the Library Commission's appropriation request, please contact Shannon Behrhorst.

DATABASE TRIALS ON TAP FOR SPRING 2006

The Nebraska Library Commission Network Services Department is in the process of setting up spring trials of the following databases:

  • Consumer Health Complete™ - this new database from EBSCO is the single most comprehensive resource for consumer-oriented health content. It is designed to support patients' information needs and foster an overall understanding of health-related topics. Consumer Health Complete (CHC) provides content covering all areas of health and wellness from mainstream medicine to the many perspectives of complementary, holistic and integrated medicine. This full text database covers topics such as aging, cancer, diabetes, drugs & alcohol, fitness, nutrition & dietetics, children's health, men & women's health, etc. Full text (PDF) information dates as far back as 1946.

  • PriceMiner.com - a new research tool for art, antiques, and collectibles, containing data from eBay, GoAntiques and TIAS. PriceMiner.com can be used as a price guide as well as an identification tool. Several libraries subscribed to this database after trying it out during the fall 2005 trial period. We're sponsoring another trial this spring with an eye toward a possible group purchase. If libraries are interested, pricing would be based on the total population served of all participating libraries, with individual libraries paying in proportion to their individual population served.

  • ABC-CLIO Social Studies Database Solutions - this series of interactive subscription websites challenge students to evaluate historical evidence, interpret current events, and make comparative analyses. The seven websites-American Government, American History, State Geography, World Geography, World History: Ancient and Medieval Eras, World History: The Modern Era, and United States at War: Understanding Conflict and Society-open with breaking news, feature stories, and engaging daily activities. Students can search by text, reference category, period, or region, depending on their abilities, learning styles, and assignments. They can also access subject-specific lessons and activities by time period, place, or concept.
If you are interested in participating in these trials, please stay tuned to the TRIAL mailing list for further details. If you are not currently a member of the TRIAL mailing list, learn what it is and how to join at /netserv/listservs.html.

Trials of additional databases will be coordinated and announced on an ongoing basis throughout the remainder of the year. For a snapshot of database trials available at any given moment, please see our Database Trials page located at /netserv/trial.html.

If you have questions about or suggestions for database trials, please don't hesitate to let me know at 402-471-3849 or 800-307-2665, or email Susan Knisely.

ISSUES & CONTROVERSIES IN AMERICAN HISTORY  PREPUBLICATION OFFER FOR NEBRASKA LIBRARIES

You are cordially invited to be among the first to view a demonstration of a brand-new database for grade levels 7 through college: Issues & Controversies in American History, an historical resources database for students and educators. It makes the U.S. history curriculum as vital and compelling as today's news, by taking users into the minds of the key players and the battles they fought.

Issues & Controversies in American History explores the most contentious issues of our past as they were understood then. It puts users in the middle of the arguments that surrounded formative events - from the Stamp Act, Indian Removal, the Civil War, and Women's Suffrage through the Vietnam War. Then, it explains our current understanding of these same issues - many of them as hotly contested today as they were at the time.

Issues & Controversies in American History, to be launched in spring 2006, is a searchable, interlinked online subscription database, available alone or in combination with any other Reference Suite @ FACTS.com database. Its concise, balanced original articles link to primary documents such as historical newspaper articles, diaries, speeches and interviews. Other linked resources include discussion questions and activities, photos and cartoons, maps, timelines, charts, historical biographies, survey articles and timelines.

Prepublication Offer (good through March 28)

  • Subscribe now to Issues & Controversies in American History at the special prepublication price of $195. This is a 50% savings off the $395 list price.
  • Your subscription will begin Spring 2006 and run through December 2007.
    Upon publication, the price of $195 will rise to $245 and service will still be through 2007.

  • Taking advantage of this offer will ensure that upon renewal your price will be based upon what you paid, not list price, so you will always be saving.
  • Restrictions: The special prepublication offer is for one site, for colleges under 5,000 FTE and public libraries under 30,000 population served. Multi-site offers and offers for larger institutions are available upon request.
To DEMO this new resource, go to www.facts.com/amhist. This is NOT a full trial, you will see a demonstration.

To ORDER fill out and mail or fax back the purchase agreement located at
nlc.nebraska.gov/netserv/pricing/issues_and_controversies_amhist.doc.

ON YOUR MARC: OCLC UNION LISTING BECOMES LOCAL HOLDINGS MAINTENANCE

As described in the OCLC Product of the Month article in this issue of N3, OCLC Passport software has finally come to an end. In migrating the last Passport module, Union Listing, to Connexion as Local Holdings Maintenance (LHM), the programmers changed to a true MARC Format for Holdings Data. While some library staff may be familiar with this MARC format through its use in their local system, others may not have known of its existence.

Learning this new format should not be too difficult. Like other MARC formats, the layout consists of MARC tags, indicators, and subfields, as well as fixed and variable fields. The same type coding system used in Union Listing is found in LHM. For example, retention code 6 still means "Retained for a limited period" but is found in the 008 field instead of the SCHD and SIHD fields, subfield ≠f. Enumeration and chronology information from SCHD/SIHD subfields ≠v and ≠y are transferred to field 863, subfields ≠a and ≠i. Note entries from SCHD/SIHD subfield n transferred to field 852, subfield ≠z.

Greater detail may be recorded with LHM than Union Listing allowed. The 008 field provides for lending and additional acquisition information. Enumeration and chronology information may include more than one level, one level being volume and year information. Supplementary material and index holdings may be described in formatted or free-text fields.

For information about specific fields and values of the MARC Format for Holdings Data, Help links in each field bring up the appropriate page in OCLC's Local Holdings Format and Standards. Three documents are also available from OCLC's Local Holdings Maintenance documentation page, http://www.oclc.org/support/documentation/localholdings: MARC 21 Format for Holdings Data Primer, OCLC-MARC Local Holdings Format Tag Chart, and Local Holdings Maintenance Quick Reference. Additional documentation and examples may be found in the Library of Congress's MARC 21 Concise Format for Holdings Data, http://www.loc.gov/marc/holdings.
