EBSCO Releases Link Resolver

EBSCO Publishing announced that LinkSource has been officially released for trial and purchase. LinkSource is an OpenURL compliant link resolver designed to allow libraries to provide bidirectional, item-level linking to a wide range of online information resources from a single link menu. LinkSource, which was demonstrated during ALA Midwinter, has many linking partnerships in place, and EBSCO is working to establish partnerships with additional vendors.

LinkSource instantly provides pre-validated links that match citations with available full text from more than 12,000 journals—approximately 16 million article links. LinkSource allows appropriate copy linking for DOI-based links (through CrossRef), links to virtually any Web-based library OPAC, and links to interlibrary loan or document delivery services. In addition, a number of pay-per-view options are available to acquire e-content either directly from the publisher or through EBSCOhost Electronic Journals Service.

There is no need for libraries to purchase, configure, or maintain local servers since LinkSource is hosted at EBSCO Publishing's computing center. This allows LinkSource to be set up on a trial basis so that interested librarians can test the service. More information and a list of linking partners can be found at
