“They have been a tremendous resource for us and our industry peers in identifying and preventing the continuation of subscription fraud around the world. This has resulted in the restitution of lost business, and the organic growth of our licensed business in territories in which doing business had previously been very challenging. More recently, their ability to use aggregated publisher data to perform a global IP address clean-up has been extremely valuable and has provided us with the information needed to develop a more accurate data set in which we now and will continue to have significant confidence.”
Christopher McKenzie, Global Intellectual Property Management VP, John Wiley & Sons
“I’m very much in favour of a global registry of IP ranges, for exactly the same reason that we use the national OpenURL registry run by Edina. That is the one place where we register our actual OpenURL base URL, and we tell our vendors that our base URL is openurl.ac.uk. Then when we need to update our base URL, we only have to do it one place. We had many redundant and incorrect IP addresses on our accounts with publishers, whereas managing our IP addresses via a global registry would mean that all publishers would have knowledge of our correct and up-to-date range.”
Terry Bucknell, Head of Collections, Content and Discovery, Sydney Jones Library, University of Liverpool
“First we had SerialsSolutions, then we had COUNTER, and now we have PSI. Publisher Solutions International should be an acquisition librarian's dream come true. PSI is attempting to construct a reliable index of institutions' IP addresses and then to keep it up to date. This will save both publishers and their subscribing libraries a whole lot of trouble.
From the library perspective, every time their institution updates their IP addresses, the librarian must notify all those publishers and platform vendors with whom they have an electronic relationship. Now, with PSI, they need only notify PSI.”
Diane Costello, Executive Officer, Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL)
