Most of our e-journal packages are subscriptions and the titles included may change from year to year. Maintaining an accurate account of our legitimate access requires review and updates in SFX, WorldCat Local knowledge base, the proxy configuration file, etc. Catalog records in Aleph are maintained with the MARCit service. A list of packages and review status is maintained below.
THIS SITE IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. Most recent package review info is here: R:\Acquisitions\Electronic resources\Package_Reviews_Chart
This is done at the time of the package change with information provided by the publisher.
A full package review is done when publishers have a chance to provide content on site and SFX has a chance to reload or recreate targets.

ASME Transactions Journals package plus Applied Mechanics Review package. Does not include ASME Conference Proceedings. New titles may need proxy entry.
See paper file (invoice copy) for subscriptions. Non-subscription titles should be activated in SFX ELSEVIER_SD_CELL_PRESS with a 1-year embargo as they are open access (1/2014).
Subscription and Freedom Collection
Use the SFX Unix-side ExLibris script to upload SD subs and Freedom Collection holdings to Elsevier targets. This script offers the the choice of Freedom or SD Complete targets.
Notes: Generic Freedom Collection title lists are available and regularly updated at http://www.info.sciverse.com/techsupport/journals/freedomcoll.htm but these are not necessarily correct for UMass; dates vary by institution. Occasionally export an SFX Freedom Collection activated object portfolios file and check titles without date thresholds, adding dates if content is available.
Package review: SFX targets should not require manual changes (purchased archives; packages on Autoactive). Note when targets are updated and spot check for problems.
We have the following different types of subscriptions that make up our IOP online access.
Title lists: Extra (renewal) includes Gaps (purchase) content and open access titles. Previous titles: Many title changes; included on Extra list.
Date thresholds: INSTITUTE_OF_PHYSICS_RECENT_ARCHIVE_PURCHASE target includes both Archive and Gaps purchases so date thresholds reflect combination.
Watch for title changes and previous titles.
Package review: Manual changes needed.
NERL Title list differs from EBSCO invoice (3/15). Title list at NERL: New, leaving, and OA titles are listed separately; list does not include prev titles but we add a page and track year to year. If necessary, in the past there has been a title changes list on Oxford site, Oxford Journals
SFX Targets: Use OXFORD_UNIVERSITY_PRESS_CURRENT target. Open access titles: Use HIGHWIRE_PRESS_FREE target.
Proxy: Requires separate proxy entry for each title.
CQ PRESS We have 8-10 Sage/CQ Press monographic series on standing order. They are active in the CQ_ELECTRONIC_LIBRARY target and new editions should become available when published. We are invoiced at the beginning of each fiscal year and at that time Heather checks that we have access to the volumes we purchased the previous year.
SAGE PREMIER Process: Wait for SFX target (March 2015); deactivate old year and activate current year. Change target precedence. Spot check new titles by running a Collection report and check unique titles. SFX target: SAGE_PREMIER_[YEAR]
UM Springer ejournals in package begin 1997. Bob Boissy created a best-guess list this way: use a KBART ejournal list generated from Springer site, sort by date of first issue, change pre-1997 to 1997 and erase vol/issue info; sort by last date first and, assuming titles are current, erase current year. However, a dataloader file may deactivate previous titles. See files on R drive.
Springer is refusing to add previous titles to title lists sent to ExLibris (4/14); add local op to Springer target with note in Internal note field “previous title”.
As of 11/14 we do not have order records on individual titles in Springer NERL package. However, order records are being added for previous titles to prevent losing prev title access. A list of Springer previous titles is on the R drive.
Download a list of UMass accessible titles from the Wiley admin site (see Contacts app for login) and save to R drive. This list shows Core Collection, 2010 Full Collection, Opt-In, Take-over, Free, Free in bundle, and “Not in any Collections” titles. NOTE: Any title previously cancelled in the Core Collection will not be available to UM in the Full Collection.
Wiley opt-ins are temporarily free for Core subscribers but we need to register to obtain access. Opt-ins usually become paid titles in subsequent years and we can choose not to subscribe when they cease to be free. See and update R/S:Acquisitions/Electronic resources/Wiley/Wiley_[year]/WileyOptInsandCoreCancellations[year].
