YBP Library Services' GOBI (Global Online Bibliographic Information) is the most intuitive online interface relied upon worldwide by academic, research and special libraries. It provides access to more than 13 million titles, including more than 1 million digital titles from leading aggregators and publishers. Whether your library staff is looking to search bibliographic records, monitor the status of orders or create activity and expenditure reports, YBP has the solution.
By registering for GOBI, your library receives:
Flexibility to view all formats available in one bibliographic record
Consolidation of digital and print titles with assurance of duplication control
GOBI users can set up new title notifications using either their library's slip plan or parameters that are set in GOBI. Users can also set notifications, called GobiAlerts, for individuals who do not have GOBI access. GobiAlert users can then recommend the titles for purchase directly in GOBI. Just define the search parameters and select your schedule and output preferences, and search results will be delivered automatically every Saturday to the assigned recipient(s). Please note: Only GOBI Administrators or users with GobiAlert Administration authority can create GobiAlert users and notifications.
GobiSmart provides validation of data elements at point of order (fund, location) saving key strokes and eliminating keying errors.
