Two More Linking Deals with Google Scholar

Two more companies that sell products and services to the library market have announced new linking arrangements to Google Scholar (http://scholar.google.com), which launched in November 2004 and enables searches of scholarly literature. [For information on Google Scholar, see http://newsbreaks.infotoday.com/nbreader.asp?ArticleID=16324. See also "Library Collections Linked on Google Scholar for Free" at http://newsbreaks.infotoday.com/nbreader.asp?ArticleID=16204.]

Sirsi Corp. (http://www.sirsi.com) announced a new service that permits a library to link its holdings to Google Scholar via Sirsi Resolver, Sirsi's OpenURL reference linking tool. Library users can search Google Scholar, rely on a link between Sirsi Resolver and Google Scholar to indicate whether the library has access to the particular e-resources, and then have one-click access to full-text articles from those licensed e-resources. This linking service will be available at no charge to Sirsi libraries that are already using Sirsi Resolver, including those using Sirsi Resolver through Sirsi Hosted Services. The company says this new service provides greater public Web visibility of valuable library e-resources.

EBSCO (http://www.ebsco.com) announced that its EBSCO LinkSource link resolver now includes Google Scholar as one of its OpenURL-enabled sources, which allows EBSCO A-to-Z customers to activate their online resources through the search engine. EBSCO is providing this service at no additional charge to all A-to-Z customers who use an OpenURL link resolver, regardless of vendor. EBSCO's A-to-Z service provides library patrons with a single, comprehensive list of the electronic titles to which they have access. A library's print titles can also be included.
