Serials Solutions is pleased to announce new Japanese-language enhancements for the Serials Solutions 360 services. These developments feature improve search results through enabling alternate kanji character matching in Japanese-language title searches, added support for many new databases unique to the Asia-Pacific region, and Japanese-language localization for the New Serials Solutions 360 Search federated search service.

These enhancements add to a series of 2009 developments within the 360 e-resource access and management services that provide greater support for Japanese libraries. Previous enhancements include language localization in the 360 Link OpenURL link resolver service and enhanced Japanese language title sorting in 360 Core and the Library Managed Holdings interface.

Today, subscribers can customize Japanese-language sorting and alphabetization options for tracked resources in both patron and client-facing interfaces, provide their discovery interfaces in Japanese, facilitate accurate kanji searches, and enable access to a large repository of Japanese-language databases.
