[360 Core & 360 Link] ISSN / ISBN search enhancement request
For EJP and 360 Link, ISSN & ISBN search is availavle only when the ISSN & ISBN are included on Title Metadata.
But there are many title's metadata which have only eISSN / eISBN even if title data of each DB has the pISSN / pISBN.
*Sometimes Title Metadata doesn't have any ISSN/ISBN.
On Client Center, we can find titles by searching pISBN even if title metadata doesn't have pISBN.
I think same specification is better on EJP and 360 Link.13 votes
Request determineing no result when the volume number and author do not match.
When there are no Suppl. on the publisher's page, sometimes 360 Link navigates the wrong article page.
For example, please see the URL below.
And it might be more useful for the users if this enhancement will be made.

Allow filtering of UnPaywall and Open Access Button results on Link Resolver
360 Link should allow filtering of the Unpaywall and Open Access button results so that libraries can choose which versions to display. This would allow us to display only peer-reviewed results. Both services return version information in their API. Our library would like to use this open access button feature, but we need to be able to filter the results.9 votes
Idea for changing the results of the 360 API's calling to sort of order to the most recent first .
As the reaction to the release on 3rd Nov 2021 which has been provided on EJP, I'm suggesting of changing the results of the 360 API's calling to sort of order to the most recent
Because it become more usable if the platform which using this 360 API could display the databases with the most recent coverage first.8 votes
Enable DOI search for not CrossRef DOI
360 Link can search content by DOI published by CrossrRef.
But DOI published by other institute (e.g. JaLC) is not searchable.
So please enable DOI Search for not CrossRef DOI.6 votes
Show the details of contract with publishers concerning search target
Contents which are searchable in Summon differ per publisher or database.
It will be helpful for librarian if they could confirm the details of contracts about search target or the breakdown of search target in ClientCenter.4 votes
EJP usage report : eBook and eJournal accessing counting through EJP
It would be better if we can build the EJP usage report, which can counting the eBook and eJournal accessing through EJP.4 votes
Upload KBART Files Directly into 360 for Community Use
In order to enhance the number of databases with full title lists, I would like to be able to upload KBART files provided to us by publishers and vendors. There is a significant time lag between purchasing/licensing ebook packages from Elsevier and Springer, for example, and those books being available in 360. This has a huge impact on efficiency and patron satisfaction. We need tools to aid in maintaining efficient workflows in our current systems.4 votes
Intota - Internal Resource Notes on titles in LSH databases should be saved
You are able to enter a text in the Internal Resource Note field on a title in a Library-Specific Holdings database.
It looks as if the text is saved but when you search for the title again you can see that it has not been saved.4 votes
Intota: Coverage Date to “Present” in LSH-databases shouldn't be converted to 01/01/1900
When you enter “Present” as “Coverage Date to”in Intota this is converted to the date 01/01/1900 in eJournal Portal. If you leave the “Coverage Date to” field blank, then eJournal Portal shows the end date of the holding as “to Present”. Our wish is that entering “Present” will show up as “to Present” in EJP as well.4 votes
Intota Consortium Sharing: Status should be inherited on title level as it is on database level
When you cancel a subscription to a single journal in a database in the “parent instance” in Intota and wish to be able to see all data entered (payments etc.) after the cancellation you must choose any other Status than “Not Tracked” for the journal in question. On the other hand, you must choose “Not Tracked” to remove the title from the eJournal Portals belonging to any “child instance” that have inherited the journal through Consortium Sharing. Setting Discovery to “Off” doesn’t solve the problem. This is both illogical and annoying.4 votes
360 Usage Statistics
For 360 Usage Statistics report, there is no separate data for every month, it is just an overall number of the year.
We would like to have the data of every month like SFX analytics.3 votes
A more user-friendly way to manage Library Specific Holdings for our print serial
We would like to see a more user-friendly way to manage Library Specific Holdings for our print serials. Often, our holdings are not continuous; we have gaps in coverage. The only way to add additional dates of coverage is to "Add title" for each date range. 360 then merges the multiple date ranges into one serial record. Having the ability to manage multiple date ranges within one record would be helpful. This system limitation also affects editing. Right now, if you need to edit date ranges for one of these serials, you are only given the option to edit one of the date ranges. If you need to edit one of the un-editable ranges, you have to delete the whole record, and then recreate the record by adding new titles for each date range again.
Although you can download the file, edit the Excel file, and then upload it again, this is cumbersome when you only need to edit one title.

fuzzy keyword search in the E-Journal Portal (AZ List)
Our patrons do not always know the exact name or spelling of a journal or how to use an asterisk.
We think the E-Journal Portal search box should support fuzzy keyword searching.3 votes
360 Resource Manager - Contacts
With many providers moving to URL-based customer support portals, it would be great if the 360 Resource Manager Contacts area had a URL field to record the support portal URLs.3 votes
searching az list click on database - no list of your titles
we now use SFX and on the a z-list, our users can click on vendor (= database name) and then see all titles within this selection. pe click on sage and then see all your active sage titles.
We will shortly switch to 360 core client centre (and stop with sfx) We now do not see on the front on the new a-z list ejournals this functionality.
Our users miss this3 votes
The Client Center staff-side user interface needs to be updated. It looks and functions almost the the same as it did when we first used Serials Solutions in 2004. It's slow and fails accessibility testing.3 votes
Ebook Usage Report
We can see e-Journal usage by title on 360 usage report but for e-Books, we only see Database lebel usage.
It would be better if we can check e-Books title lebel usage.3 votes
Filter search results in the Ebook and Journal portal (EJP)
The EJP is a good way to find full text journals by subject area, however, once you have searched or browsed to a subject, there is no way to narrow your search any further except to show only open access titles. It would be helpful to restrict results to recent books or journals with current access, or to peer-reviewed sources, for example.3 votes
