      • Easy alphabetical re-ordering of menu items.

    July 15, 2011

    The following new features and functionality were released to 360 Resource Manager during our upgrade on July 15, 2011:
    New payment and cost tracking capability: Libraries are now able to record multiple payments in a single fiscal year to more accurately reflect how the costs for resources are paid. Features include:
    • Payment Type, a completely customizable way for libraries to indicate the type of payment being recorded. For example, you can indicate if the payment reflects a Credit Memo or perhaps a Supplemental Invoice.
    • Transactional Currency: Libraries can now record the currency and amount in which payment was made. This is especially valuable if you pay for resources in a variety of currencies.
    • Include in Total for Year: Libraries can determine, per payment, if the cost should be included in the total per year. You may choose not to include one time set-up fees in the Total for Year.
    • Fund Codes: Libraries can now track up to 500 funds and amounts per payment.
    The enhanced ability to track payment data will also affect 360 Counter, giving you more options for cost-per-use assessment.
    Changes to Cost Data Uploader and Cost Reports: Changes have been made to the Cost Data Uploader to support the new Payment Details page. You can now record multiple payments for a single fiscal year from the Cost Data Uploader. You are also able to run a Cost Details Report from the Resource Manager Reports and use it as a template for the Cost Data Uploader - delete and add back in later as needed.
    Adding the unique Serials Solutions Identifiers to 360 Resource Manager Reports: The Serials Solutions Resource Identifiers (Provider Code, Collection ID, Database Code, Title ID and SSID) are now included in 360 Resource Manager Reports to provide you with more flexibility for using and integrating this data through the e-resource lifecycle.
    Bug fixes in this release allow the following:
    • Costs and payment information can be entered with a comma. (For example, 5,000.00 will now be accepted.)
    • Cost and payment information is now displayed in reverse chronological order in the left-side navigation system
    • E-Book titles assigned to a License will now display correctly as Title to provide consistency with the Journal Title label.
