What does JUSP do?
• Supports libraries by
providing a single point of
access to e-journal usage
• Assists management of ejournals collections to
inform evaluation and
decision-making processes
• Enables usage comparisons
and trend analysis

If JUSP were no longer available….
“With a diverse and constantly changing e-resource portfolio, we really need
some central system that will collate usage data and allow us to analyse it
easily. We shouldn't be juggling 50-plus spread sheets to achieve this - which
we would be doing without JUSP.”
“I would not have time to do as much detailed analysis of our subscriptions,
and this analysis is valuable at a time when our budget is tight and we are
having to review our subscriptions carefully.”
“It would take longer to harvest stats, which would impact on other
development projects and potentially adversely affect collection management

Core titles in a deal
Historic spend model:
• Retain existing core or subscribed titles at normal
price: these titles will be unique to the institution
• Add unsubscribed titles to make up the deal or
collection at a negotiated price for the whole
• Limited cancellations or substitutions of core or
subscribed titles may be allowed
Adding details of your core titles to JUSP
• 64 JUSP libraries are now marking up their
core titles in JUSP
• The largest number of titles marked up for any
one year is 4073
• Work only has to be done once, JUSP can
transfer core title lists to the following year
• Feedback has been very positive
“I attended a workshop recently which gave me further insight
into using JUSP, I came straight back here and entered my core
titles as a result of the workshop, and I intend to use JUSP more
frequently now.”
“Since the adding of the core subscriptions I will be able to do
more reporting”
“The ability to add local holdings is also very good, and I only
wish I'd had all these publishers available last year when
evaluating a deal!”
