Endeavor Information Systems and TDNet Expand Partnership

Mar 10, 2006

Endeavor Information Systems, a provider of library management software, has announced that it has expanded its existing partnership agreement with TDNet, a provider of eresource management solutions, to deliver a new technology offering, Discovery: Resolver, a system which delivers electronic access to OpenURL and non-OpenURL target resources.

Discovery: Resolver, a replacement for Endeavor's current LinkFinderPlus product, will utilize technology developed by TDNet to provide context-sensitive linking from OpenURL enabled sources to full text sources. In particular, Endeavor customers can benefit from TDNet's linking functionality, as well as access to the company's multi-disciplinary Knowledge Base, which currently consists of more than 100,000 titles--including eBooks--that are updated weekly. Additional functionality includes the ability to repair partial citations and the creation of links to resources that are non-OpenURL compliant.

Discovery: Resolver offers new features. Improvements include the ability to handle moving walls and embargos, as well as more complex holdings; support for exposing holdings and link resolving in Google Scholar; dynamic A-Z listing of resources accessible through Resolver; the ability to export OpenURL citation-to-citation manager packages such as EndNote; enhanced statistics, including Counter-compliant reports; and the ability to perform basic customizations via a Web interface, such as editing text on a linking screen and adding a local logo.
