2020-2021 pricing for Gold Rush Decision Support is now ready. This was a new TAL offering last year.
This is a joint Consortia Canada / TAL license. BCI is the lead consortium.
In 2019-2020, there were a total of 23 participants across Canada and the maximum discount level for 20+ libraries was reached.
Gold Rush® Decision Support (formerly Gold Rush® Reports) is developped by the Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries. Decision Support allows library staff to compare title lists from over 1,500 aggregators, publishers, and indexing/abstracting services that have been loaded into Gold Rush®. It allows comparison of the content within packages even if the library does not subscribe to them! This is especially helplful to collection development, library administration, and reference staff who are trying to make tough decisions on what products to purchase and cancel.
All reports are generated in real time over the Web and may be viewed on most standard browsers or downloaded into Microsoft Excel™. Title lists are updated on a regular basis in order to provide the latest and best information possible.
A unique feature of this service is that it covers both full-text as well as indexed-only titles.
Late joins are accepted.
If you wish to join or cancel this subscription, please contact Christa Foley at TAL by March 24, 2020. Current subscriptions will be renewed if cancellation notice is not received by March 24.
