CISTI announces new OpenURL link

Jun 10, 2005

The Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information has announced a new OpenURL link with TDNet, a supplier of electronic resource management solutions. This link is designed to allow access to CISTI's Document Delivery service for TDNet users. Outbound and OpenURL links to CISTI can now be activated from most online information services, link resolvers and library systems.

OpenURL-enabled linking is intended to allow libraries to create links from a source (e.g. a citation) targeted to the needs of their end-users. Clients can benefit from using OpenURL because they are receiving up-to-date order forms and information from CISTI. There is no need to program forms based on CISTI-defined formats or update these programs each time CISTI makes a change.
