    360 Resource Manager: Release Notes and Service Status

    • Product: 360 Resource Manager

    Where can I find release notes and service status for 360 Resource Manager?

    June 17, 2022

    The E-Journal Portal 

    NERS Project: Allow for the ordering of EJP results 

    This feature eliminates user confusion caused by results that were not obviously related to the searched terms. Currently, Alternate Titles and Main Titles are equally weighted if either contains the search terms. You now have the option to prioritize results that have the user’s search terms in the Main Title over results that only have the search terms in the Alternate Title. That is, if the Main Title includes the search string, that title will appear higher in the results list than if the search string is only in the Alternate Title.  

    The feature is enabled in the E-Journal Portal 2.0 Results Page Options: 

    360 RN 6-17-2022 - Image 1.png

    This option impacts Title Begins With, Title Equals, and Title Contains All Words searches. 

    Resolved Issues

    • The characters : + - && || ! ( ) { } [ ] ^ " ~ * ? : \ were causing an error in the autocomplete suggestions because Solr requires they be handled specially.  Autocomplete suggestions are now successful when the user includes these characters. 

    360 Link 

    Idea Exchange: Database order in 360 Link and EJP: Make it possible to upload changes in a file 

    This enhancement streamlines database prioritization by allowing you to manipulate a spreadsheet and then upload it directly to the Administration Console. 

    360 RN 6-17-2022 - Image 2.png

    The addition of Database Code in the user interface and the downloaded .tsv file helps quickly identify the databases you want to re-order. 

    Resolved Issues

    • Ovid databases are added to the Global Exclude List at the request of that provider. 

    360 Core Client Center 

    Idea Exchange: Provide an overall percentage of MARC record availability at the database level. 

    This enhancement allows you to quickly view the percentage of titles in a database with an associated MARC record in the 360 Knowledgebase. Rather than sampling several titles in the database, you can immediately view the coverage percentage in Database Management and on the Database Details page. 

    360 RN 6-17-2022 - Image 3.png

    360 RN 6-17-2022 - Image 4.png

    Resolved Issues

    • VPAT Level A accessibility refinements 

    • ISBNS were not appearing in the Overlap Analysis results in some circumstances. 

    • Updated links to corporate web pages for each product 


    Idea Exchange: Provide an overall percentage of MARC record availability at the database level. 

    This enhancement allows you to quickly view the percentage of titles in a database with an associated MARC record in the 360 Knowledgebase. Rather than sampling several titles in the database, you can immediately view the coverage percentage in the Databases list and on the Database Details page. 

    Resolved Issues

    • Contact Details Roles can now be edited or removed. 

    • The titles of Library Specific Holdings databases are no longer duplicated on the Database Details page. 

    • Execution Data in License are saving and displaying correctly. 

    • Menus Settings > Resource Status entries are able to be deleted. 

    • Added to the License Information Report: 

    • Course Pack Print 

    • Course Pack Electronic 

    • Course Pack Note 

    • Remote Access 

    • Remote Access Note 

    • The More (#) hyperlink in the Home > Tools > Notes Resource(s) column now navigates you to the full list of attached resources. 

    360 COUNTER and Intota 

    Numerous improvements were made to the SUSHI harvester to increase visibility into processing hiccups and to streamline 

    • Surface additional warnings and errors to the user interface including “No usage available for requested dates,” “Incorrect API key,” and “No longer available for requested dates.” 

    • Limit the number of attempts to harvest a given report during the month to 5 in order to end the infinite loop of some reports in the queue

    • Stop requeuing reports after encountering an error like “no usage available for requested dates” 

    • Clear unharvestable reports from the queue and user interface  

    February 23, 2022

    The E-Journal Portal

    New! Auto-complete suggestions are tailored to your library profile. Only resources to which you subscribe in your library profile are offered as potential search options when you begin typing in the search box:


    This customized list distinguishes resources that the library owns/licenses/tracks from the whole universe of 360 Knowledgebase titles and eliminates “0 search results” issues.

    The feature applies to all libraries, and the auto-complete index is updated weekly. I.e., there may be a delay in tracking/untracking a title and its appearance in the auto-complete suggestions list.

    Resolved Issues:

    • Inherited Terms of Use did not display for consortium members. Now consortium members can always view Terms of Use inherited from the “parent” library.

    • If a library disables video searching in EJP, the “Videos Only” results filter no longer displays.

    • The Custom Text > Citation Linker Form > No. 48 did not display the customized message.

    360 Link

    Resolved Issues:

    • The display time for the ILL form submission pop-up is now extended from 3 to 10 seconds. The longer display time should reduce user confusion and prevent duplicate request submissions.

    • The Google Scholar feed did not work for a small number of libraries.

    • If both Crossref and PubMed identifiers are present, the Crossref identifier is always preferred.

    360 Core Client Center

    Resolved Issues:

    • Holdings URL replacements (a November 2021 feature) did not appear in the View Changes audit.


    Resolved Issues:

    • Uploading titles lists to LSHs was inconsistent and displayed confusing error messages.

    • Deleting titles from LSHs did not work.

    • Holdings URL replacements (a November 2021 feature) did not appear in the View Recent Updates audit.

    360 COUNTER / Intota

    Resolved Issues:

    • Reports uploaded in September were not consolidated.

    • The SUSHI harvester mishandled some application exceptions, which prevented reports from finishing.

    • If validation fails due to extra tabs in an uploaded file, the error is now reported to the user.

    November 3, 2021

    360 Client Center 

    New! Make changes to database details for multiple databases at once. Edit, add, or delete the database details in a .csv file, using database codes as the identifier. For example, this feature can be used to change the “Omit proxy from this database” setting or add a Public Database Note to multiple collections. 


    For more details, see 360 Core: Database Details Upload.

    New! Configure your own holdings URL replacements for providers like Gale, EBSCOhost, ProQuest, and Thomson Reuters Westlaw. Until this release, Customer Support had to perform this configuration on your behalf. Now you can specify replacement text, add a prefix, or add a suffix to a database’s holding URL. This tool is in the Management Tools section of Client Center.


    For more details, see 360 Core: Holding URL Replacement.

    Database Details Upload and Holdings URL Replacement are not yet available in the Intota application. We will be working on integrating both tools into Intota.

    Resolved Issues:

    • Unable to save COUNTER SUSHI credentials.
    • Unable to remove authorization settings for some providers.

    E-Journal Portal

    New! Change the database sort order: if a journal is in multiple databases, configure the EJP to display the database with the most recent coverage first. To enable this option, open the Results Page in the Administration Console E-Journal Portal 2.0:


    For more details, see 360 Core: E-Journal Portal Administration Console -- 2.0 Results Page Options.

    Resolved Issues:

    • Browse by Subject feature not available after doing a search.
    • Ulrichsweb information does not display.
    • One hour cookie expiration causes mixed content error and timeout.
    • Videos search filter defaults to journals instead of videos.
    • Need language translations for Videos Only option.
    • Database payments show as loading even after saving.

    360 Link

    Resolved Issues:

    • Citation Linker form should use the same language parameter as 360 Link
    • New linking parameter is required for MIT Sloan and Indian Academy of Sciences content
    • HAN proxy handling


    Resolved Issues:

    • Unable to delete previously uploaded COUNTER r5 reports.
    • Consortium Sharing dialog window isn’t completely rendered.
    • Unable to view Renewal Details.
    • Unable to delete Cost data.
    • Unable to save IP addresses in Library Settings.

    COUNTER r5 

    Resolved Issues:

    • Added “last updated” end point to support retrieval of changes only, rather than full exports.

    August 4, 2021

    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

    Details of the View Changes/View Recent Updates audit trail can now be exported in .tsv format. Configure the data you’d like to see using the calendar controls and Event Type options and then click the Download button!



    • A long delay occurred when paging through “Unselected” titles in a database 

    360 Link


    • An email address, with valid formatting, is now required for “Report a Problem” and the default ILL forms

    All Services

    • Using the analysis performed by a third-party consultant, potential security vulnerabilities in these areas were closed:

      • HTTP parameter pollution

      • Cross-site scripting

    • Migration from FTP to MFT

    • Technical infrastructure updates

    May 12, 2021

    360/Intota Holdings API (currently in early testing)

    • Added pagination for the full holdings request in order to speed up the response

    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: 

    • Insufficient labels on Ex Libris logo, e-Catalog search controls, and various labels on Data Management area, Knowledge Base Notifications area, and Overlap Analysis area.

    • Investigated and resolved upload/harvest/process errors for reports from more than 20 providers.

    360 MARC Updates (currently in early testing)

    • Completed infrastructure to generate & deliver MARC records for video holdings.

    • Metadata librarians developed an RDA-compliant default template that may be further customized by the library.

    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.

    • 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:


      • Intota Home > Reports > COUNTER Reports page:

    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.
