Ovid Announces New Link Resolver and Outbound Linking

Ovid announced Ovid LinkSolver, its new universal link resolver (based on the OpenURL standard) that provides end users with linking capabilities with which to access their library's entire collection of Web-based content, as well as Internet resources, regardless of where they reside. Ovid LinkSolver can be purchased independently of Ovid's current product line or integrated into the OvidWeb Gateway platform. Ovid LinkSolver will be available in June 2003.

Ovid LinkSolver provides information professionals with complete flexibility in defining, organizing, and displaying links based not only on their institutions' existing electronic content collections, but also on a range of linking options available to researchers through the Internet. When used with Ovid's search engine, Ovid LinkSolver enables end-users to conduct a search in Ovid's bibliographic resources and limit the results to citations in which full text is available--either located within Journals@Ovid or hosted externally.

Ovid also announced that it is offering new outbound full-text linking functionality, delivered as a service within the OvidWeb Gateway solution. This Links@Ovid functionality will now be available to its customers at no additional charge, and provides linking from Ovid's more than 100 bibliographic databases to electronic full text hosted internally or externally, as well as locally held print resources through institutional OPACs and document delivery services.
