|divine/Faxon Library Services has announced the launch of a new renewal
module for kLibrary, its premier integrated Web-based service. The new
kLibrary renewal functionality allows clients to manipulate their renewal
checklists online; mark titles for renewal or cancellation; and make all
necessary quantity, fund, and other changes to the titles. Users can also
send notes to their client service representative for review and record
their own local notes on the system.
By alerting clients when their renewal checklists become available,
kLibrary makes it easy and convenient to review renewal information online.
In addition, kLibrary's comprehensive search functions allow clients to
select any portion of their list to review. For example, all orders for
a specific ship-to address or fund can be selected and then quickly e-mailed
to faculty and departments for recommendations and approval.
kLibrary's new functionality also greatly streamlines the renewal and
budgeting process by keeping a running dollar total of the various categories
of titles in process. This is then instantly updated as publications are
marked for renewal or nonrenewal, or held for future decision. Combined
with the system's current features and ease of use, these new enhancements
make kLibrary an unparalleled service in the industry today, according
to the company.
Users of kLibrary can assign various levels of security for the new
renewal module. An administrator at each client site will be able to change
user permissions and passwords for his or her staff.
In addition to the new renewal functionality available in kLibrary,
clients will also be able to view their renewal checklist in Adobe PDF.
This feature provides access to renewal information and other important
documents, and has the potential to significantly reduce the amount of
paper that a library receives from Faxon. Clients can then forward these
documents and post them electronically within the organization.
