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

I do not see that we received this notice, but we have not subscribed to their membership “scheme” (their word) in years.  When we did pay for extra services, the extra fees allowed users to setup alerts and other functionality that is expected of any good platform these days.  Maybe someone at Ingenta is lurking on the list and can clear this up if just a misunderstanding or intended for a very specific market?  I was hoping the FAQ would clear up some of the questions this email raises, but only that they will continue to enable SUSHI for non-members as the COUNTER standard requires.

I’m unaware of a fee paid by the library to platform providers such as Ebsco, Proquest, American Chemical Society, etc, for the ability to use the InCommon Federation for authentication to their content. We may pay a fee to InCommon from a non-collections budget, but not to the content providers who permit use of that service.

We don’t use Ingenta, but we do pay for Shibboleth.  We also pay OCLC for EZ-Proxy.   These authentication services are not free.

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<http://app.getresponse.com/click.html?x=a62b&lc=dKhyh&mc=JR&s=XHG7vy&u=BsFy9&y=u&>. 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.<http://app.getresponse.com/click.html?x=a62b&lc=dKhQY&mc=JR&s=XHG7vy&u=BsFy9&y=r&>
