Why choose Ingenta Connect Complete?

⇒ Download ingentaconnect Complete brochure

Ingenta Connect Complete is a package of upgrade services designed to enhance and complement the free Ingenta Connect service. Ingenta Connect Complete's features can be adopted on a modular basis, or purchased as a set to form a competitively-priced enterprise solution to collection management needs.

Library holdings matching

Integrate Ingenta Connect with your OPAC, to maximize the value of your entire collection.  Upload holdings information to block unnecessary purchasing and link patrons to your other online and offline holdings.  The OpenURL-compliant holdings feature leads your patrons directly to content they can access, no matter where it is.

"Ingenta Connect represents a key element in our library's electronic journal collection. The user-friendly website smoothly links to 'our own' journal titles or to quick and economical per-article purchases from journal titles that we do not own."

» Linda S. Richer, W.E. Upjohn Institute Library, USA

Control and monitor document delivery spending

Provide your patrons with mediated and unmediated document delivery access to articles from non-subscribed publications, without losing control of your expenditure.  Set up cost centers with appropriate limits for different patron groups.  Obtain monthly reports to track spending, and use these in conjunction with our usage statistics to make informed budgetary decisions.

"Carleton patrons do use Ingenta a lot. It's a one-stop shopping service where patrons can search, order and receive their journal articles through unmediated ordering. This is a bonus for our patrons."

» Callista Kelly, Carleton University Library, USA

Offer context-sensitive assistance to your patrons

Upgrade your branding options from those offered within the free service, by adding additional logos, links and messaging around the site to ensure that your patrons' usage of your online and offline resources is optimized.

Reduced administration

Pre-register your patrons by uploading log-in details, enabling access to your Complete site with their usual log-in.  

Advanced search and alerts options

Researchers require the latest information in their chosen research areas.  You can keep them up-to-date with Ingenta Connect 's InTouch alerting services, which email alerts to users when new issues of a chosen journal, or new articles containing user-specified search terms, are loaded into Ingenta Connect.  The service is fully OpenURL-compliant, and allows for customization of text within email alerts.

“Love the e-alerts for content!”
