What are the available Package Types in Holdings Management?

The following Package Types are available in Holdings Management: 

Complete
The Complete Package Type are full-text databases or e-journal packages you purchase from the publisher as a complete set. EBSCO manages these packages for you. When a vendor or publisher adds or removes a title, or changes a title's coverage in a complete package, EBSCO automatically adjusts your Holdings Management list.

If you do not want EBSCO to update your list with additional titles, navigate to the package in the Holdings Management Package search and toggle the "Allow EBSCO To Add New Titles" setting to "No" and click Save.

Variable
The Variable Package Type are packages whose titles may vary depending on your agreement with the publisher (a "Complete or Selectable" package). You can manage the addition of new titles manually, or you can choose to let EBSCO add them automatically.

If you would like EBSCO to update your list with additional titles, navigate to the package in the Holdings Management Package search and toggle the "Allow EBSCO To Add New Titles" setting to "Yes" and click Save.

Selectable
The Selectable Package Type are packages that are defined by, but not offered by the publisher as a complete set; instead, titles that are included are selected individually by the institution. 

Custom
The Custom Package Type are packages are created by and custom to the institution.
