My Firm's Library
My Firm's Library* is a concept that allows you to easily view those sources that are of value to your organisation. Automatically all sources that are submitted by your organisation or added to alerts are included in My Firm's Library. All your private sources, Email2Linex sources and saved searches are also automatically part of My Firm's Library. You can also manually move items to be part of My Firm's Library.
As an Administrator when you go to the Source Management area you will see two tabs, one for My Firm's Library and one for All Sources. This helps you quickly move between the valuable sources for your organisation and the thousands of sources that are available in Linex. All Sources contains all the items in My Firms Library plus those other public sources that are available. If another Linex customer adds a new public source then it will be visible in All Sources.
For subscribers who have Personal Alerts, the My Firms Library can be the collection that Readers pick from to create their alerts.
*This label can be changed to something of your choosing e.g. 'Acme Key Sources'
