More Wrong Subscriptions!

April 2021 update. Our Callisto service has many unique benefits. But one of our favorites is discovering when an e-resource content provider has made a big mistake, and is granting subscription access to the wrong institution. For example, today as I write, we see that three different providers are accidentally authorizing the wrong institutions to access to subscription resources that are paid for by the University of Illinois at Chicago, Ochanomizu University in Japan (お茶の水女子大学), and two campuses in Taiwan: Kaohsiung Medical University (高雄醫學大學) and the Taipei College of Maritime Technology (台北海洋科技大學).

Callisto 2.2

In January, we began rolling out a series of enhancements to Callisto’s capabilities. These are part of an even larger system redesign effort that is still underway. A little history seems relevant here. We first developed Callisto in 2010-2011, with it becoming available in August 2011. Although we made many improvements in subsequent months and years, the software we built then was largely the same.
