Knowledge Base Plus (KB+)

Knowledge Base+ (KB+) is a service provided by Jisc Collections that aims to help UK libraries manage their e-resources by providing accurate publication, subscription, licence and management information. Duplication of effort is avoided by giving libraries access to a centrally managed knowledge base of publication information for e-journal agreements. Further information about the service, including how to sign up, can be found at:

The KB+ development project is being delivered by a consortium of partners. Knowledge Integration (with Sero) is responsible for the software and the data model. The project has been a massive success to date and is widely regarded as a great example of Jisc Collections working in partnership with private sector suppliers to deliver high quality agile responsive solutions in a collaborative way.
