My Electronic Resources by Provider
The purpose of My Electronic Resources by Provider is to ensure that the resources acquired from the provider are activated in the institution. This feature is used to prevent situations where the institution has access to specific electronic collections but did not activate them. With My Electronic Resources by Provider, the gap between what was acquired and what is actually activated can be closed.
With My Electronic Resources by Provider , you can enter your provider account ID and view the electronic collections for which you have subscriptions from that provider. In addition, in the Availability column the system highlights the electronic collections that you have activated, and the electronic collections that remain to be activated for your subscription.
