[Eril-l] FW: Important changes to Ingenta Connect

I haven’t seen this mentioned in this forum yet. Ingenta seems to be
passing on costs for what I thought were standard services related to their
platform. It looks like we could lose some serious functionality if we
don’t “subscribe.” Has anyone subscribed? I think we will contact
publishers using the Ingenta platform and suggest they move to something
more accommodating without charge to libraries.

*Dear Librarian,*

As you have seen from our mailings and news bulletins over the past few
months, we have launched your new Library Membership scheme, and *your
Ingenta Connect service will change imminently*.

By joining our Library Membership Scheme, you can:

   - Continue using OpenAthens and Shibboleth single sign-on access control
   - Set up unlimited alerting for published material
   - Create your institution’s own custom page
   - Set up RSS feeds for new issues
   - Use SUSHI to work with existing COUNTER reporting
   - Export MARC XML records as .csv files for your subscriptions
   - Compare usage between titles in Excel/.csv spreadsheets
   - Benefit from Service Support by email and IM
   - Receive discounts on new services, such as Kudos for Institutions and
   RedLink Dashboard

*What does this mean for you?*

Previously, Ingenta have paid for Athens and Shibboleth single sign on
services on behalf of our users. As we grow, and to ensure continuity of
service, it is now necessary to share this cost with the end users.

*To continue to benefit from OpenAthens and Shibboleth authentication, and
the additional new services you will need to sign up as soon as possible**.

Signing up for Library Membership with an annual membership fee of just
£250 (+ applicable tax) is completed with just a few simple steps, and
allows you unlimited access to all the Membership discounts and features,
including OpenAthens and Shibboleth identity based authentication.

Payment of £250 (+ applicable tax) can be made securely online by logging
in and going to your usual administration pages on www.ingentaconnect.com
There you’ll see a link to take you to secure credit card payment, which
will provide a receipt.

The switchover to the new service means that we will change the terms of
use effective from January 2017. These terms can be viewed *here*.
