When looking at a title record in GOBI, you can garner a lot of information about the title - and whether you can order it through GOBI. You can see the title's availability and price, whether orders are being accepted for a title or whether those titles are in stock; if a title is published or out of stock or we've already purchased it; etc.
For print title records, you will see a record similar to this.
1. US List shows the price of the title.
2. US Status will usually say either In Stock or Orders Accepted.
3. Last Received YBP-US shows when YBP last received this item. This can be an important indicator of whether the title will come back in stock. A recent date indicates that the book is likely still in print and can be acquired, even if it isn't in stock at the moment.
4. The right side of the record can display a variety of messages, including Slip Sent, Shipped to Library, Exported, Alternative Editions, Library Open Order, etc.
eBook title records are similar to print title records, with a few differences.
The record will note, in red, that the item is an eBook.
At the bottom of the record, you can see the eReader (Supplier), user options (Purchase Option), UCLID status (Library DDA), and contract status (Library Availability) as well as the prices. Consider which eReader (for example, here, EBSCOhost, ProQuest Ebook Central or SpringerLink) is best. Also, and more importantly, consider how many users will need access to this item at once. If you expect this title to be used by a class, Acquisitions recommends Unlimited or Non-Linear users. If the title might be in higher demand but we cannot purchase unlimited users (whether the service is unavailable or cost prohibitive), you can purchase a Multiple User - often 3 Users - service. If the title likely won't see heavy use, the Single User Option (SUPO) or 1 User may be sufficient. If a title is already visible in UCLID as part of UCL's DDA package that will be indicated with a YES in the Library DDA column. Lastly, if Library Availability is stated as Request Contract, please email email@example.com or order via Tricerashopper.
