WASHINGTON, D.C., – BioOne is proud to announce a new partnership with theIPregistry.org from PSI to ease access for our community of libraries and institutions. This collaboration will save time and reduce administrative burden for the more than 3,500 libraries worldwide which partner with BioOne and its 150 independent society and nonprofit publishers.
With theIPregistry.org, subscribers to BioOne’s flagship aggregation BioOne Complete and other products will be able to streamline IP management processes and seamlessly authenticate users requesting access to content. This enhanced service will be accessible on the BioOne Digital Library beginning on June 15, 2023.
“As an organization which seeks to support the needs of both libraries and publishers, integrating with the theIPregistry.org will allow our library partners to more efficiently access the critical research generated by our publisher community,” said Christine Orr, BioOne’s Director of Sales and Community Outreach. “Ultimately, this will save time for librarians while more reliably delivering key biological, environmental, and ecological findings to researchers, students, and instructors.”
“We created theIPregistry.org to provide libraries and publishers with a truly collaborative, transparent and accurate source of data”, said Andrew Pitts, CEO and Co-founder, PSI Ltd. “This partnership will provide BioOne’s partners with an easy, reliable, and secure way to update the IP addresses used to authenticate access to content.”
