KBART at Springer Nature
What is KBART?
KBART is used by Knowledge Bases and Libraries to find out what eBook and Journal content they purchased and how to link to it. This is an integral part of the Discovery layer. With KBART a library's Discovery Service knows which books and journals a library has access to from a publisher. This allows the library's users to search the content the library purchased and when found click through to content hosted on the publisher's platform. Traditionally (per the KBART Phase II Recommended Practices), this provides sellable packages and consortia lists and requires the customer to select the package they subscribe to on the Knowledge Base layer to feed to their Discovery Service.
