Knowledge Base+: New funded shared service will help universities manage their e-resources (UK)

Knowledge Base+ is a new shared service from JISC Collections that aims to help UK libraries manage their e-resources more efficiently. KB+ is being established to start addressing the challenges facing libraries due to the inadequate data and metadata about publications, packages, subscriptions, entitlements and licences that is available throughout the e-resource supply chain. The result is that libraries are spending too much time correcting and maintaining basic e-resource information and not enough time is left to undertake the sort of decision making that they would like to be conducting to improve services for users
