I stopped at the Nerac reception yesterday afternoon to see and hear about its latest product offering for librarians. The new TOC Journal Watch Plus provides a single point solution for tracking and accessing documents from 21,000+ journals. According to a company representative, the enhancements in this product are centered around the needs of librarians to aid in promoting their library services.
Some advantages include: custom branding, Open URL compliant for easy retrieval of full text, new administrative tools, and statistical reports. One of the beta users, Martha Ellison of the 3M Library, was very pleased with the now live product. Some 800 end users within 3M subscribe and manage their own alerts.
