Serials Solutions 360 (Automatic Sync and Manual Upload)

Modified on Fri, 30 Sep, 2022 at 4:03 AM

Automatic Sync
Third Iron and Serials Solutions work together to automatically sync holdings for our mutual customers. If you would like auto-holdings please contact us at and we would be happy to coordinate with Serials Solutions to set this up for you.

Please also make sure you have checked the option "Display In: 360 Core" in your Client Center profile for all publishers. This option MUST be checked for all titles, otherwise those titles will not export with your automated BrowZine holdings reports.

Note that automated syncing is available on a monthly basis at this time. We receive the files on the first day of every month. If you ever need to have your holdings updated more frequently for any reason, you are welcome to manually export a report at any time.

Below is information for manually doing this same process in case that is desired for your particular circumstance.

Manual Upload 
Holdings are uploaded to BrowZine by using your A-Z service to export holdings.

For Serials Solutions the procedure is simply to use the Data on Demand tool in the Client Center area which can be found as seen below under "Manage Your Data":

Generate a New Data on Demand Report as shown with the options below:

1. UTF-8

2. CSV without Subjects

3. Journals content

4. UNCHECK split file (this MAY be necessary if you have a REALLY large file that cannot be uploaded to us, but typically this is not necessary). 

This may take a little while to generate. 

Please ZIP the file to reduce its size.  As these are text files they tend to shrink pretty dramatically with compression easily clearing the 30MB maximum upload file size.

When finished, please visit the holdings upload page to upload your holdings document to us.  

We will notify you when your holdings have been loaded for your library.
