Springer Nature is providing its customers with KBART Automation for knowledge bases and discovery services. KBART Automation is a service for libraries and research institutions which helps to streamline their processes with minimum manual work involved. Springer Nature currently allows for KBART Automation of SpringerLink content to OCLC, Ex Libris’ SFX and Alma. KBART Automation for Nature.com content is currently under development and will pave the way to a seamless one stop solution for Springer Nature automated holdings.
After a one time set-up, the unique holdings feeds from Springer Nature are automatically uploaded to the libraries’ knowledge base and discovery service. The customer logs onto the Springer Admin Portal, copies and pastes their institutional token and sends it to their discovery service. The institution’s licensed content will be automatically and correctly accessible for discovery. Librarians will no longer need to manually manage their lists and title-by-title exceptions for licensed Springer Nature content.
