Endeavor Information Systems has released details of collaboration with Scopus, the abstracting and indexing database, to provide OpenURL-enabled linking capabilities. In 2004, Endeavor has been supporting nearly 50 worldwide libraries trialing a version of Scopus enhanced with LinkFinderPlus linking capabilities. The partnership brings Endeavor's OpenURL-enabled linking technology to new users in corporate and research settings, and expands Endeavor's existing outreach to academic and research libraries. With Scopus, LinkFinderPlus brings "image-based" linking to end users, enabling dynamic displays of full-text links within the Scopus interface. Image-based linking is designed as a time and action saving feature displayed only when LinkFinderPlus has confirmed that the end user has access to the full-text, ensuring end users do not run into dead ends in their research.
