Elsevier Package Update

NCSU librarians and staff are ingesting and updating Elsevier serial packages in GOKb. For more information about this work, visit Elsevier Provider Documentation.

Title History

The DPP unit staff, led by unit specialist Lisa Madden, with help from ERL Tessa Minchew, work on the title history project. The project will populate title history information for all serial titles in Elsevier packages.


Led by Eric Hanson, the team has built Macros for Elsevier packages and will continue developing macros for other provider packages. The macros have simplified package ingesting process in OpenRefine and saved staff time significantly. For macro examples, visit Elsevier Provider Documentation page.
