Holdings Management - Knowledge Base Change Report

The Knowledge Base Change Reports allow you to view changes made to EBSCO's Knowledge Base—the directory of all titles available in EBSCO. These reports detail the behind-the-scenes changes that occur globally across the Knowledge Base and let you know when titles were automatically added to or removed from your Holdings list. Collectively, these reports provide you with up-to-date information on the changes made to EBSCO's content.

Knowledge Base Change Reports Explained

There are four reports available:

  • Knowledge Base Change Summary—an overview of all changes made to the Knowledge Base during the specified time period. Generating the Knowledge Base Change Summary Report will list a summary of all three knowledgebase reports, including the number of packages added to EBSCO and the titles added to and removed from packages in your collection.

  • Packages Added to the Knowledge Base—lists all packages added to the Knowledge Base, along with the date they were added to EBSCO. In addition, when a package is currently part of your list this will be indicated by a "Y" in the Selected column.

  • Titles Added to Packages In My Collection—If a managed title has been added to a package you have selected, it will appear in this report. In addition, if you have enabled automatic updating of titles for the package in which the title is contained, it has been automatically activated on your list; this will be indicated by a "Y" in the Selected column.

  • Titles Removed from Packages In My Collection—If a managed title in a package you have selected has been removed from EBSCO's Knowledge Base, it will appear in this report (regardless of whether the individual title was included in your collection). If the title was part of your collection, it was automatically removed from your list.

    Note: The Knowledge Base Change Reports only include data from the global EBSCO Knowledge Base. Any custom titles that are a part of your institution's collection will not be included in these reports.
