GOKb is exploring several new directions that would help capitalize on the existing strengths of the project and engage with the new FOLIO collaboration from EBSCO and OLE. To help with this effort, GOKb hosted a half-day workshop with electronic resources librarians from North Carolina State University, Duke University, and The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill to brainstorm challenges and potential solutions for issues that affect the electronic resources supply, specifically:
● Supporting management and access when journal titles transfer across publishers
● Understanding and distributing data about OA publications
● Making the best use of standard and proprietary identifiers.
The GOKb New Directions Workshop Report provides a summary of the workshop findings and potential plans for new GOKb services.
