The Dashboard shows your ACTUAL CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION ACCESS for all providers from all of your locations and networks at a glance. See if you have the WRONG INSTITUTION's subscriptions (most universities do!) Callisto highlights everywhere access is inconsistent. Easy search & sort options show just what you need.

Why Your Library Needs Callisto

Most of the e-resource problems reported by Callisto are caused by the content providers themselves.  Providers casually meddle with your authorized IP ranges and titles during your paid subscriptions and it’s left to you to discover their mistakes.  Incredibly, many providers allow one institution’s subscription to disable another’s existing subscription.  In libraries with distributed personnel handling subscriptions there is another layer of chaos — with many people configuring your supposedly campus-wide subscriptions, incorrect IP ranges or co-branding information can get submitted.

Every academic library that has used our revolutionary Callisto service on multiple networks discovered immediately that between 5% and 23% of their e-resource subscriptions were configured wrong, with missing access for sections of their campus!

Identifying these huge problems is just what Callisto can do for you the first day.  It does much more, to keep you on top of e-resource support every day of the year.
