[Eril-l] Database A-Z list policies (Montavon-Green, Jennifer N.)

Peters, Paul M. peters at uiwtx.edu
Wed Mar 3 11:02:23 PST 2021

We do not have an actual policy, but I also had to come up with some means for inclusion and exclusion of resources when we did the same kind of migration to using the LibGuides A-Z Datbases List. Our Dean of Libraries lives and dies by statistics, and her preferred framework is ACRL. So, I used the definition under "41. Digital/Electronic Databases" in the ACRL survey directions as a starting point. 

1) We exclude individual journals, books, or media titles (though I was later forced to add an entry for the New York Times due to an appeal made to the Dean by one of our librarians). 
2) We exclude individual journal, book, or media collections that comprise the content for a database, but are not separately searchable in themselves (JSTOR Arts & Sciences V or Wiley Science, Technology, and Medicine journals - they are all searched through JSTOR or Wiley Online, respectively)
3) We exclude entries that simply go to a list of resources, but are not separately searchable (our AV Librarian had asked for entries for every subject subcollection in Films on Demand).
4) We include all of the sub-databases available under the big providers like EBSCO, ProQuest, and Gale (If there is a sub-database link available in the admin module, we list it as a separate database)
5) We include separately searchable sub-databases of larger databases (We have a link for LWW Health Library, but also separate links for the Pharmacy, Exercise Science, and other collections within it)
5) We include freely accessible websites IF they contain a searchable collection of content, but not straight informational websites.

I wish I could give you a hard and fast policy, but much of the decision making about inclusion and exclusion depends on what your library identifies as the needs of the users.

I did do one other thing in the process of migrating our databases from the old system to the new one. I standardized all of the database descriptions such that they all include the same pieces of information, rather than relying on vendor descriptions ("Premiere database for...", "Contains more than 6000 titles...", etc.) or description provided by a subject librarian. I use the following formula:

Resource Name

Overall Subject(s)    Transition    Primary Content Types    Transition    Particular Subjects/Topics    Transition    Additional Information


Humanities Full Text 

Humanities    resource for    journals and magazines    covering    the humanities, including art, classical studies, dance, film, journalism, philosophy, religion and more.    Includes    selected interviews, poetry, reviews, and other content.

Social Science Citation Index

Social science    resource for finding    journals, reviews, and proceedings    covering    a range of social science disciplines, including anthropology, communication, education, geography, law, political science, sociology, and more.    Includes    options for advanced, author, and cited reference searching.

Hope this helps,

{apologies for cross posting}

The Library of Congress is pleased to announce the latest annual call for input from stakeholders involved in the lifecycle of creative works for the upcoming annual revision of the Recommended Formats Statement<https://nam11.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.loc.gov%2Fpreservation%2Fresources%2Frfs%2F&data=04%7C01%7Cpeters%40uiwtx.edu%7C31b94baac2264880295b08d8ddbea8e0%7C0625d309c5bc41209828ea3d7071af19%7C0%7C1%7C637503158257718590%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=RmvzMlQrJEUp0w%2BlHr%2BZ7anClYSXplwRFTrJobmkQ6g%3D&reserved=0>.  This is all the more important this year, as the current version is the result of the most careful and intensive revision of the RFS since it was first launched in 2014.  The changes made last year in developing the 'RFS 2.0' represent the Library's understanding of the growing importance of the Statement not merely in its own work, but to the broader community and its determination to ensure that it meet the needs of all its stakeholders.

In its last revision which created this new RFS 2.0, the Library focused on two key improvements.  The first was a restructuring of the Statement itself, to represent developments in how works are created in our increasingly digital world.  As a result, in this version of the RFS are included three new categories of creative works: Musical Scores; GIS, Geospatial and Non-GIS Cartographic; and Design and 3D.  Each category represents the remarkable and unique ways in which creation is happening of all three types of works.  The second was the creation of a file format evaluation matrix.  This tool provides our in-house experts a structured way to manage their review of digital file formats as part of the annual revision process of the RFS; and it offers external users of the Recommended Formats transparency in how the Library evaluates digital file formats in the RFS hierarchies.

In addition to hearing back from you about how the latest version of the RFS is working and what might be improved, the Library wants to know more about specific aspects of interest and use to particular groups of users.  For example, what does the independent game development community consider to be the master, or archival, version of the software that they have created?  How might the RFS be revised in order to better meet the needs of your particular community?

The Library of Congress is encouraged by the value its partners and stakeholders around the world have found in the Recommended Formats Statement.  We look forward to hearing your thoughts<https://nam11.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.loc.gov%2Fpreservation%2Fresources%2Frfs%2Fcontacts.html&data=04%7C01%7Cpeters%40uiwtx.edu%7C31b94baac2264880295b08d8ddbea8e0%7C0625d309c5bc41209828ea3d7071af19%7C0%7C1%7C637503158257718590%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=qeJFEc%2FzFnp5bCA2URPvnS9CWfjC3u4sg7n2rFaRm9w%3D&reserved=0> by March 31 as we prepare for the upcoming revision of the Statement this summer, due out on June 30.

Subject: [Eril-l] Any success with COUNTER 5 SUSHI for Clarivate/Web

According to the COUNTER website, Clarivate requires an API key for their SUSHI harvesting:
https://nam11.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.projectcounter.org%2Fcounter-user%2Fthomson-reuter%2F&data=04%7C01%7Cpeters%40uiwtx.edu%7C31b94baac2264880295b08d8ddbea8e0%7C0625d309c5bc41209828ea3d7071af19%7C0%7C1%7C637503158257718590%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=%2F87Jj2qhe81ncdG6yHAS06LZeluB7K8v0Knc4CdFkqM%3D&reserved=0. I want to draw attention to the last step of getting the API key " 6. Further Instructions will be delivered in order to complete the set up process." We received two sets of instructions - first more specific SUSHI instructions, where we got as far as looking as the "eye" icon and not finding the required information, which was followed by the more generic instructions when we asked for additional assistance. Has anyone gotten SUSHI to work for Clarivate/Web of Science, and which SUSHI harvesting platform are you using? I have not run into any other COUNTER 5 SUSHI vendor that has such difficulty as far as retrieving the API key.

Specific SUSHI instructions
To retrieve your SUSHI API developer token, please follow these

   - Click Log In to log into your account on the developer portal at
   - Click Applications Link in top banner.
   - Locate your SUSHI application and click the hyperlinked application
   name to navigate to your SUSHI application home page.
   - Locate the SUSHI API under Subscriptions and look for the "eye" icon
   under the Secrets column.
   - Click the "eye" icon to show your token. You can Copy/Paste the token
   into your SUSHI client.

Generic instructions
In order to process the request for the requested Web of Science rest API, please take a moment to register in the Clarivate Analytics Developer Portal, using the instructions below:

1 . Go to our Developer Portal (https://nam11.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdeveloper.clarivate.com%2F&data=04%7C01%7Cpeters%40uiwtx.edu%7C31b94baac2264880295b08d8ddbea8e0%7C0625d309c5bc41209828ea3d7071af19%7C0%7C1%7C637503158257718590%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=gSlohqBiBSzbpQUdPkHXzz1kGsfMIyb1hEjPpbkM430%3D&reserved=0)

2. Register yourself as a user in the Portal. (under ?Don?t have an account? Sign up.) Make sure you use your institutional e-mail address, not an anonymous e-mail service (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, Yandex, etc.). If you have a login to the Web of Science already, you should be able to use that login.

3. Once you sign in, go to ?Register and View Your Applications?. You will need to register the application for which you wish to use data from Clarivate Analytics. This includes an abbreviation, as well as a full name for your application. If you are registering your application for the InCites API, please do not check ?This application will use OAuth2.0 Flows (other than the Client Credentials flow, i.e. using redirects)?.

4. Please also complete the Description field for your application to describe how you intend to use the API, and what data you are looking to display. Also, please include the name of your organization in the description field as well.

5. Once you register your application, you?ll need to select the API you wish to use. Follow the steps to submit your request and fill out all required fields.

Hi there,

I'm looking to see if anyone has any particular advice on an access problem I've been trying to fix.

When we log in to a journal titled Operative Dentistry we are seeing another University's branding. We log in successfully but we are hitting a paywall when trying to access the articles. We authenticate through EZproxy and OCLC support can't pinpoint the problem. The journal's support looked at things and came up with no solution -  our IP addresses are accurately registered, the subscription is activated. This is definitely a new problem, it is not a new subscription. It seems to only be a problem when going through the proxy IP. Our on campus IP addresses can access articles ok and see our branding. I don't see this problem with other resources. I have gone through the typical troubleshooting steps.

Short of contacting the other University I'm not sure what else to investigate. Any advice?

Hi all,

We're in the process of migrating from a homegrown A-Z database list to Springshare, and I've been tasked to write a policy detailing which resources are included, which aren't, what metadata we include, etc. I have a rough outline, but as I refine it, I thought I'd see if anyone else has a policy already in place. If so, and you feel comfortable sending them along, I'd love to see them.
