Ex Libris Announces MetaLib Version 4.3

Mar 31, 2009

Ex Libris Group, a provider of automation solutions for academic, national, and research libraries, announced the release of version 4.3 of its MetaLib gateway and metasearch solution. Enhancements have been made to the MetaLib back-office tools, including the addition of task-based wizards that enable librarians to activate MetaLib resources, to customize the user interface, and to create linking URLs to integrate the MetaLib functionality with other applications. MetaLib end users will benefit from a tighter integration between MetaLib and the SFX OpenURL-compliant link server, also from Ex Libris. From a list of search results, users will now be able to link directly to the full text of articles in peer-reviewed sources when they are available.
