Presented at the Charleston Conference 2018. Libraries, publishers, and intermediary vendors strive to disseminate the most current information to their patrons and clients through the metadata in their catalogs, services, and software. One significant pinch point in this landscape is the transfer of journals from one publisher or vendor to another. The Transfer Code of Practice was created to provide stakeholders in this information supply chain with best practices and guidelines to ensure that the transfer process occurs with minimal disruption and that journal content remains accessible to readers and subscribers. These guidelines have become increasingly important since the creation of the Transfer code in 2008, as the number of online titles, publishers, and supply chain intermediaries has grown exponentially. For these reasons, Transfer is undergoing two significant changes this year as we mark the ten year anniversary of the Code. The current Code of Practice is in its third iteration, which was adopted in 2014; in 2018, the Transfer Committee began revisions for version 4. These revisions will accommodate the changes that have occurred in the journal publishing market, especially changes in technology and terminology. In conjunction with the release of version 4 of the Code, the free online Transfer Alerting Service will be migrating to the ISSN International Centre (Paris, France). This new platform will replace the existing Enhanced Transfer Alerting Service which is hosted and maintained by the University of Manchester (UK). This session will present attendees with an overview of the Code, with a specific focus on new and updated content. Presenters will also provide a demonstration of the new platform, showcase the new and improved features of the service, and explain the process that publishers and librarians will go through to share and access Transfer information.
