    360: Perpetual Access Title Representation in Springer Nature KBARTs

    Perpetual Access Title Representation in Springer Nature Collections

    Ex Libris continues to receive customer cases regarding Springer Nature titles that are not available in the current packages.  These legacy titles are not available in the Springer Nature Complete targets as well other targets. Thus, they are not accessible to customers who purchased the content from Springer Nature on a Perpetual Access basis. 

    Springer Nature is aware of this issue and is continuing to research the titles and work towards an appropriate solution for representing these titles.

    As a service to our customers, Ex Libris created the ad hoc Springer Nature Perpetual Access target - (615400000000000395 – DBID: SHUTK) based on titles reported in some customer cases.  Unfortunately, maintaining and updating this target has proven unsustainable. Therefore, we will not manually update neew titles in this collection.

    We await a comprehensive solution from Springer for this ongoing issue.
