Serials Solutions, a business unit of ProQuest Company, today launched Serials Solutions® KnowledgeWorks Certified, a metadata certification program for content providers. KnowledgeWorks Certified helps maintain the highest quality bibliographic metadata for e-resources, eBooks, and more by ensuring that the Serials Solutions KnowledgeWorks knowledgebase is populated with the highest quality data.
“The intent of the Serials Solutions KnowledgeWorks Certification Program is to develop the best possible relationships between Serials Solutions and content providers,” says Sherrard Ewing, Provider Relations Specialist at Serials Solutions. “These relationships will help Serials Solutions best represent bibliographic metadata in the KnowledgeWorks knowledgebase.”
Greater collaboration also helps Serials Solutions to more quickly resolve issues when they occur. Serials Solutions provides content partners and librarians with a dedicated Provider Relations Specialist who will help address and resolve inquiries about resources or data. Both content providers and librarians can trust that through the KnowledgeWorks Certified program, their users will receive the best experience accessing licensed content.
