The development focus is on the front end of the software now, and the UX Developer is building out the pages more fully. The goal is to have all basic pages able to display data by the ICOLC meeting in April. The demonstration server is now automatically harvesting eight vendors’ data: ACS, BioOne, OUP, MUSE, Sage, T&F, Wiley, and JSTOR. All four master reports (TR, PR, DR, and IR) are being harvested, subject to their availability from the vendors.
There has been significant interest in the upcoming CC-PLUS pilot, and the planned pilot participants will be finalized and invited soon. The goal is to cover all typical use cases (individual library, self-hosting consortium, hosted consortium, ConsortiaManager users, etc.).
Governance in place is for project, but bylaws that establish the way the community should function will be important to the project’s future and sustainability. A draft of bylaws will be prepared for the next Advisory Board meeting. A draft of a possible MOU was also presented to the Advisory Board to start a conversation about a more formal relationship between CC-PLUS and COUNTER.
A presentation about CC-PLUS is on the ICOLC April meeting agenda. This will an opportunity to provide an update on the work of the project and check in with the larger community for feedback.
