    360 Core: Including Your Library's Print, Individual e-Journal, e-Book, and OPAC Holdings in a Library-Specific-Holdings Database

    • Product: 360 Core Client Center

    Can I include my library's print holdings, and individual e-journal and e-book titles, in our Serials Solutions products?

    Many libraries choose to integrate their print holdings and individual titles into their Serials Solutions services, so their holdings will be available to patrons in the E-Journal Portal, 360 Link and Summon, for example. This provides a comprehensive list of every title available at that institution.
    A library-specific holdings database (also called "locally managed holdings" and "library-managed holdings" -- LMH) can contain any of the following:
    • Titles from your online catalog (OPAC), including:
      • Monographs
      • Individual print Journal and e-Journal titles
      • Individual e-Book titles
    • Any other titles or databases that Serials Solutions does not yet include in its 360 KB authoritative system.
    You can have as many different library-specific holdings databases as you like.
    If your library subscribes to Summon or 360 Link, read about some issues that can arise when using library-specific holdings databases.
    NOTE: If your library subscribes to 360 Search, Library Specific Holdings (LSH) databases will not appear in your database lists.
    You can use one of two different processes to get titles into a library-specific holdings database:
