EBSCO Leverages OpenURL Technology

Jun 21, 2005

EBSCO's LinkSource link resolver now allows EBSCO A-to-Z customers to activate their online resources through the search engine, including Google Scholar as one of its OpenURL-enabled sources.

For example, in an academic library, end users at participating schools who use Google Scholar will see article-level links displayed for their institution's subscriptions. These links will lead to the library's LinkSource menu from which the user can access the appropriate copy of the article, bringing the licensed electronic full-text from the Google Scholar search results.

In recognition of the value this program extends to customers, EBSCO is pleased to provide this service at no additional charge to all A-to-Z customers who use an OpenURL link resolver, regardless of vendor.
