A presentation at the Charleston Conference about Jisc and CC-PLUS was very well attended, and discussions were held with ConsortiaManager about possible future integration. There is CC-PLUS representation on the committee to develop requirements for the COUNTER 5 tool for consortium report functionality.
CC-PLUS Advisory Board members held a meeting on November 30, 2017. The group decided to submit a preliminary proposal for a Project Grant to extend this project through the IMLS National Leadership Grant program in 2018. The meeting included a live demo of the CC-PLUS prototype. Testing of importing and exporting institutions, providers, and credentials has been successful. No usage data has been pulled into the system yet. The roles of Admin, Manager, and User were discussed. The Manager is envisioned as an institutional power-user with some administrative privileges related to the person’s home institution, although the functional tasks of this level of user are to be determined.
