JSTOR and Serials Solutions Partner to Enhance Discoverability of Resources
Serials Solutions, a business unit of ProQuest LLC, announced a pilot project that will allow students and researchers at institutions subscribing to the Summon web-scale discovery service to automatically find their library’s Summon service search box when they use JSTOR. In addition to the content available on JSTOR, users will be able to easily continue to search the breadth of their particular library’s collection for additional materials, enabling faster, simpler research. The collaboration furthers the Summon service’s mission to make library content easier to discover by researchers and students.
With more than 1,300 scholarly journals and more than 1 million images, letters, and other primary sources, JSTOR is one of the world’s most trusted sources for academic content, serving nearly 7,000 institutions in 159 countries. With this pilot, JSTOR users from institutions subscribing to the Summon service will be recognized through IP authentication, prompting the appearance of their institutions’ Summon search box on JSTOR. That will allow them to run a search across the other resources available at their institution’s library, providing an uninterrupted and accelerated research process.
The pilot will involve a small number of institutions and will run through June 2011. The goal is to make the service available to all Summon subscribing libraries thereafter.
