[Eril-l] Academic Video Online (AVON) in Catalog?

Hi Whitney,

Vanderbilt has AVON and Alma. We activated the "Academic Video Online: Premium - United States" CZ collection and added a link in our Databases A-Z list. For the Build By Choice perpetual access titles we select each year, we use the "Move Set of Portfolios" in the Service Editor to move those portfolios to a local collection we called "Academic Video Online Perpetual Access Titles". Our POL is linked to both collections and both collections link to the same bib in the "Additional descriptive information" field.

We wanted to use the perpetual designation in the Access type field of portfolio, but that field does not prevent a portfolio from being deleted if one day we cancel AVON and delete the CZ collection.

If any Alma libraries have a better option for managing AVON, I'd love to know.

Good morning,

We recently started managing Academic Video Online (AVON) and are curious what other libraries are doing? If you use ExLibris Alma, did you activate a collection there or are you just limiting access to your A-Z?
