An introduction to the JISC Academic Database Assessment Tool

Author:

Liam Earney

Abstract

The JISC Academic Database Assessment Tool (ADAT) aims to help libraries to make informed decisions about future subscriptions to bibliographic databases. The ADAT is freely available and provides access to detailed information and title lists for major bibliographic and full‐text databases, and key service information for database and e‐book content platforms.This paper will provide an introduction to the ADAT, why it was created, where it is today, reactions to it from both the academic and publishing communities and how libraries and service providers can help to develop the service and ensure it is kept up to date and free.
