TDNet's Standards-based Acquisition Management Tool
Acquisitions data provided in the Acquisitions Manager are supplied through Teldan's WebVision Subscription Manager. Teldan Ltd. is a leading international subscription agent with 30 years of experience, and a co-owner of TDNet, which therefore benefits from the many years of development of software and services related to acquisition, management and access to eJournals, eBooks and e-packages for subscription customers.
In addition, TDNet's affiliation with Teldan extends its total KnowledgeBase to include accurate and up-to-date subscription and commercial information about a library's holdings.
TDNet can also use a data loader to load acquisitions data from a customer's ILS or subscription agent. Data such as price, order information, ILS number, funding information, and subject assignments can be included, as well as information for additional parameters such as price currency, shipping, delivery (received issues) and version (print, electronic, etc.).
TDNet was among the first companies to use ONIX SOH, SUSHI and other ERM standards, as well as attending various working groups in the US and Europe. In addition to compatibility across its own suite of products (Journals Manager, Acquisition Manager, eBook Manager, Searcher Analyzer, etc.), TDNet utilizes both API scripts and Web Service Layers to connect and communicate with other tools and systems provided by other companies.
Development of a new version of the Acquisition Manager
TDNet's Acquisition Manager is designed to complement rather than to replace the acquisitions/ financial module of an ILS. Moreover, the new version is designed to interact with other application software, including the ILS, through the use of Web services as the mechanism for inter-process communication.
Contact record and administrative information will be provided in new acquisitions manager and/or licensing module. This functionality is not currently available within the current modules but could be contained within the notes. Such contact information will include:
Notices to the public are currently controlled through the Journal Manager and Searcher Analyzer, but will also be accommodated within the new Acquisitions/Licensing module.
