DG Data is the new self-service area for librarians on degruyter.com which provides access to holdings lists with MARC records, usage reports, and an option to update institutional IP addresses.
Holdings lists and export options
The menu item "Holdings" provides institutional administrators with information on the publications that their institution has licensed from De Gruyter. The holdings lists are arranged in five different publication groups:
- Journals: contains all subscribed and purchased journals
- Databases: contains all subscribed and purchased databases
- Books: contains all purchased eBooks
- eBook packages: contains all purchased eBook packages
- Other ebook holdings: contains other collections of eBooks. These are not packages that the institution has purchased in this form, but individual eBook purchases combined in a package for technical reasons
When an area doesn't contain any publications in the holdings list, it will not be displayed.
The entire holdings list as well as holdings for different publication groups can be exported in Excel or CSV format by clicking on the "Export" link. The exported lists contain the same information as the list displayed in DG Data. Additionally, it is possible to download MARC records for eBooks on an individual book level or for the whole eBook package.
In the menu item "Usage", librarians can access COUNTER Reports for their institution. These are provided by our partner LibLynx. The different COUNTER 5 reports can be accessed within the site and downloaded in Excel format. Additionally, it is possible to get SUSHI access details for the institutional account.
With DG Data, it is no longer necessary to access usage reports in the system of our partner LibLynx as the same information is now available within degruyter.com.
Updating IP addresses
The menu item "Update IPs" provides direct access from DG Data to the The IP Registry, a service by PSI, our partner for IP address management. For making changes within The IP Registry, a separate account is required which can be easily created through the link provided on this page.
Access to DG Data
You will then be provided with a URL that allows you to register a new librarian account on degruyter.com. Should you already have an account on the site, the URL will provide an option to upgrade this account to an administrator account.
