Analysis Tools in CDO

Analysis Tools enable you to find consortia that license selected vendors’ content using a Boolean search. This means that you can find consortia that license products from up to four vendors, from any of four selected vendors, or that license products from selected vendors, but not others.

From the results of an analysis you can:

  • Click on any consortium and be taken to the consortium record
  • Click on any Ringgold Identifier and be taken to the Identify Record for that consortium (login required)
  • Download the PDF profile for the consortium in the results list
  • Download the membership lists or contact details for the consortia in the results list

To access Analysis Tools, Click Analysis on the CDO navigation menu
