Elin@: Electronic Library Information Navigator--Towards the "One Stop Shop" Information
Alwerud, Anna; Jorgensen, Lotte
Acquisitions Librarian, v17 n33-34 p85-95 2005
Libraries subscribe to thousands of electronic journals and they are difficult for end-users to find. Journal and publisher interfaces and functionalities differ considerably. The recent development in e-media calls for central management of the resources. Lund University Libraries' Head Office has developed a service for presentation and administration of e-journals, ELIN@. The service is used by ten Swedish academic libraries. This article describes the ELIN@ user interface and the administration tool. ELIN@ offers a "one stop shop" that makes e-journals searchable on an article level in one single interface together with other selected material, e.g., e-print archives. Personalisation and easy ordering are other user facilities. The consistent statistics obtained in ELIN@provide administrators with tools for selection and acquisition, and library branding puts the quality stamp on the material that users and funding agencies need.
