360 Core is the foundation for your access, management, and assessment services
360 Core is the starting point for accessing and controlling your e-resource collection and the foundation for all of ProQuest’s E-Discovery and E-Management services.
360 Core delivers accurate and consistent tools for discovery, access, management, and assessment because it is powered by Serials Solutions KnowledgeWorks, the most authoritative e-resource knowledgebase. Our proprietary data collection and standardization process delivers the most accurate holdings data and best available URLs to 360 Core. You also can add your library’s local holdings, including print and microform, to give your patrons a single comprehensive directory of resources at your institution.
Provide easy access to your e-journal collection
360 Core provides a single point of entry to all of your e-resources. The A-to-Z title list, e-resource portal, Journal Linker, title searching, and subject browsing features provide a variety of options for access, all from web pages that are branded to match the look and feel of your library’s website.
Control your collection
360 Core helps simplify e-resource management tasks using sophisticated web-based tools. It’s easy to view and add journals to your collection, evaluate your holdings, and reduce acquisition costs. The Overlap Analysis tool helps you quickly identify duplicated journals and do “what if” scenarios prior to purchasing resources. 360 Core compiles click-through usage data at the title, database, and provider levels. This data can be combined with vendor usage data when using our assessment tool, Intota Assessment.
