    E-Journal Portal/A-to-Z List

    Users can now limit the results of searches to video titles only. This can be done before the search by selecting the Videos Only radio button, or done after the fact by filtering the results to Videos Only:


    Please note that this feature will be turned on by default in the EJP 2.0 settings. If the library does not want to offer this functionality, it must be turned off in the Administration Console > E-Journal Portal 2.0 tab:



    • LSH database default holding URL was not correct in the EJP

    • The public note from a database was displaying in the “Search Subject Databases by Keyword” drop-down menu instead of “Select a database”

    360 Core & Intota

    360 Client Center

    Based on feedback from the ProQuest User Experience group, we added changes to the 360 Client Center to ensure compatibility with VPAT Level A standards, including:

    February 3, 2021

    360 Client Center and Intota:

    We have added a new feature to Overlap Analysis that will allow you to separate the results of the comparison by format type: Books, Titles, Videos, or All. This will make it easier to view “like” titles across collections with mixed format types. There are two different ways to use this option:

    1. Select the desired format type before running the analysis.

      • 360 Client Center:


      • Intota:


    2. Select the desired format after running the analysis. This will re-execute the report without forcing you to start the whole process over.

    Based on feedback from the ProQuest User Experience group, we added changes to 360 Link 2.0 to ensure compatibility with VPAT Level A standards, including:

    August 5, 2020

    360 Link:

    • A new linker for ScienceDirect is being deployed to resolve issues with page, author, and issue parameters.

    360 Core (Client Center) and Intota:

    The Database Details page has been enriched with the following date stamps to show when the database was last updated in 360 Knowledgebase:

    • Last Full Update – indicates that we loaded a complete titles list for the database.

    • Last Partial Update – indicates that we processed a change to at least one of the titles in the database.

    These dates will indicate the currency of the data in the 360 Knowledgebase based on the providers’ contribution schedule.


    360 Core Example


    Intota Example


    1. Why do I see only one date, not two dates?

      If either date is empty/blank, the field will not appear on the page. It may be the case that the 360 Knowledgebase team never received a full titles list from the provider, resulting in the Last Full Update date not appearing. Similarly, if the provider hasn’t submitted any content changes, the Last Partial Update date will not appear in the interface.

    2. Why hasn't the database been updated recently?

      Each provider submits content changes to the 360 Knowledgebase according to a schedule of their choosing, e.g. monthly, quarterly, or irregularly. The 360 Knowledgebase team performs data loads as content is submitted.

    3. How can I tell what was changed in the last partial update?

      Any change to the metadata since the last update counts as a partial update—whether the addition of an identifier or even a spelling correction. Given the scale of metadata that the team manages, it is not possible to report every change involved in an update.

    360 Counter and Intota:

    • Ability to manually upload TR, TR_J1, TR_J2, TR_J3, TR_J4, TR_B1, TR_B2, and TR_B3 reports

    • Full validation of the TR reports for compliance with the new standard

    • Full processing and storage of TR report statistics

    • New DRS forms for population as providers confirm r5 compliance

    Due to the complexity of the COUNTER r5 implementation, it will be released in stages between now and early 2020. The TR usage statistics will not be available immediately in Intota Assessment; however, uploaded COUNTER r5 reports will remain in a pending status until we roll out the Intota Assessment piece in early 2020. Any TR statistics that have been uploaded to that point will be then accessible in the Intota Assessment application. Please also note that there are no changes to the COUNTER r3 or r4 functionality, and reports that adhere to either standard will continue to be supported for backwards compatibility.

    We elected to implement the suite of TR reports first because they replace the current journal (JR) and book (BR) reports, which are the most heavily used by our clients. More details can be found at the Project COUNTER site, and we will provide more details on our implementation of the new TR metrics as the reports are released.  

    What will you see in 360 Client Center and Intota?

    • The upload process for COUNTER r5 reports is exactly the same as for r3 and r4 reports. See instructions for Intota and 360 Client Center.

    • You can view the pending reports on the following pages:

      • 360 Client Center Home > 360 Counter page:

    We released the following enhancements to the E-Journal Portal/AtoZ list:

Users now have the option to toggle on/off the display of alternate titles. (Previously, the display of alternate titles could be set only at the admin level.)

    • Updated Branding and Responsive Design for Terms of Use pages – For customers who use Intota or Resource Manager terms of use pages in conjunction with the E-journal Portal or 360 Link, the Terms of Use pages can now use the same branding as the E-journal Portal 2.0. (This option needs to be enabled in the Admin console.) Once enabled, The Terms of Use page will be responsive.

    • Performance Improvements for Common Search Types – We have done some refactoring to improve response times for some of the most popular (and often slower) search types for the EJP.  We expect certain types of searches to return results faster but note that this is part of a series of ongoing performance-related improvements for the EJP which will continue throughout the rest of the year. (Results may vary and might be difficult to quantify – more details to be provided post-release.
