Press Release: Swets [November 30, 2009]

Swets Enhances SwetsWise with Valuable Reporting, Charting and Claiming Functionalities to Release 5.4

Swets announced earlier today the successful launch and implementation of SwetsWise Release 5.4, the latest technical update to its pioneering portfolio of products and services. This latest update introduces a wave of further reporting, charting and claiming functionalities into a number of SwetsWise services, among a host of other technical updates and improvements.

The main features added to SwetsWise in Release 5.4 include:

Additional reporting and charting options along with expanded SUSHI support in SwetsWise Selection Support

SwetsWise Selection Support is a sophisticated decision support solution designed to help librarians and other information professionals make more informed decisions about their electronic resources. Release 5.4 adds several new charts for customers to use as possible reporting options:

  • Year to date price per use – Top 50 publishers and collection platforms (bar chart format)
  • Total monthly usage over years (bar chart format)
  • Year to date usage - Top 10 publishers and collection platforms (pie chart format)
  • Usage over years - Top 20 publishers and collection platforms (bar chart format)

Additionally, Release 5.4 implements further support for the SUSHI protocol and its reporting capabilities by giving customers the option to exclude titles without data from their reports and by adding two new COUNTER compliant reports – COUNTER Journal Report 1a and COUNTER Journal Report 3 to the list of available options. Collecting usage reports through SUSHI can lead to higher quality data and possibly lower processing costs. Customers will be requested to provide platform access details for both SUSHI collection and Website collection of usage reports.

An expansion of SwetsWise’s Shibboleth Federation Framework

In Swets’ commitment to making SwetsWise as conveniently accessible as possible, additional support for the growing Shibboleth authentication standard has been added with Release 5.4. SwetsWise now supports access from any institution member of the Dutch and German Access Management Federations.

New data formats included in SwetsWise Metadata

Release 5.4 makes the ONIX-SRN Content Item Description message format available for use within SwetsWise Metadata. SwetsWise Metadata helps libraries to populate their indexed search systems and/or gives them the opportunity to mirror their holdings in their library system. With six message formats available for use, SwetsWise Metadata can support customers who have a broad range of formats.

This solution’s extensive catalog covers more than 20,000 of the industry’s leading publications and includes over 26.5 million articles, making it the largest collection of table of contents information available in the market.

A complete list of all features, functionalities and technical updates included in SwetsWise Release 5.4 has been made available for customers within the SwetsWise platform.
