    Intota: Data Retrieval Service (DRS): Provider Administrative Sites with Special Configuration Requirements

    • Product: Intota

    I want the Data Retrieval Service (DRS) to download usage reports from a provider whose administrative site requires special setup so that the DRS service can access the site, what are my options?

    September 18, 2016 Update: Removed American Phytopathological Society.

    Amongst the providers whose administrative sites require IP authentication there are the following providers that address this issue in a different way and therefore their procedures are listed below. Following a provider's steps below will enable ProQuest to manually download your usage statistics reports via Administration-Based Harvesting.

    For most of the above providers, you need to 1) contact the provider, requesting that our ProQuest account be allowed to access your usage statistics, and 2) update the DRS Request Form's Add Library Note or User Name / Password fields. See below for provider specifics.
