Ingenta Initiates Reference Linking to JSTOR; WilsonWeb Links To JSTOR

Aug 15, 2003

Ingenta has launched a new reference linking initiative with JSTOR, the online scholarly journal archive. The partnership is intended to allow licensed JSTOR users accessing full-text articles on Ingenta, to link from references in Ingenta to the corresponding full text held in the various collections in JSTOR's archive. JSTOR is an independent not-for-profit organization with a mission to create an archive of authoritative scholarly journals and to extend access to these journals as broadly as possible. The JSTOR archive currently includes the entire back runs of 322 journals, and serves more than 1,600 participating libraries at colleges, universities, and research institutions in 74 countries.

JSTOR has also joined the data sources accessible via WilsonWeb's WilsonLink service, H.W. Wilson has announced. Customers who subscribe to WilsonWeb and who are JSTOR participants will be able to link directly to the full-text articles in the JSTOR archive via WilsonWeb's SFX-powered open-URL linking technology.

WilsonWeb enables libraries to integrate their open-URL compliant resources—including JSTOR—without the expense of installing or maintaining their own link server. If the full text of a cited article isn't available on the WilsonWeb database searched, the user simply clicks the WilsonLink icon for an automatic search of all the open-URL compliant databases to which the library subscribes, no matter what the vendor.
