Dear GOKb,


Hello from SPIE Digital Library! I have a quick question about GOKb.


It is my understanding that the data in GOKb is curated by volunteers, however I see at that “the project also accepts data feeds from providers.” Just for our information, could you tell us more about how we as a publisher could go about providing you with this data?


I ask because I see three packages for Provider=SPIE at and while two of them are absolutely correct and up-to-date, one of them (“SPIE Proceedings Volumes”) only contains one title when actually there are 11,000+ titles in that package. SPIE could provide you with our updated KBART data once or even on a regular basis, if receiving files from publishers directly is something that you support. (This of course is not to take away from the great work that the volunteers do.)


(For even more context: since GOKb can be used as the kb in FOLIO, which is something we support, we’re interested in doing all we can to support both projects.)


Thanks so much!
