EBSCO Enhances LinkSource

EBSCO has enhanced LinkSource, its OpenURL link resolver, with new customization options and other features, including an expanded knowledgebase of more than 550 database definitions and 100 link templates. With these new options, the linking service can provide more access to full text across all of a library's e-resources, in ways that best meet the needs of many different institutions and library types.

Some new features include: automatic processing of A-to-Z export files, which can be used to configure the LinkSource menu quickly; the ability to prioritize access to full-text content; customizable text messages; access to the citation manager, allowing a librarian to enter directly the citation metadata to locate related resources; and, the option to display a single link that will accurately link to multiple databases, or separate links to each database, if an institution subscribes to more than one database from a single vendor.

LinkSource will continue to be offered with all-inclusive pricing, which the company says is unique to the industry. The fee for the service includes all training, support, the knowledgebase and its updates, and product configuration services, along with unlimited linking and customization.
