WT Cox Journal Finder (Automatic Sync and Manual Upload)

Automatic Sync

Third Iron and WT Cox work together to automatically sync holdings for our mutual customers.  If you use Journal Finder, we will be pro-actively working to automate your holdings automatically.  If you are a new customer an automatic option will be offered to you upon trial setup.  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.

Subscriptions are setup by using actual library holdings.  Third Iron recommends updating these holdings on a quarterly basis or whenever you have a known significant addition/loss of content to your library to help keep your holdings accurate.  Updating your holdings typically takes less than five minutes.

For Journal Finder the procedure is to export your list of e-journal titles from the administration page.  

1.     In the administrator console select the e-journal titles and coverage report under Title Queries. 

2.     Select the first option (“List all e-journals?”) and click “Start."

3.     At the bottom of the resulting report select the “Comma Separated Values” option and then click “Export”.

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.
