New features: Full text article links

The Canary Database now attempts to create links to library full text link servers (known in libraries as “OpenURL resolvers”) for many hundreds of libraries. If you’re using the Canary Database from an academic campus, there’s a good chance you’ll see links from articles in our database back to your own library’s online journals. Follow these links to get to full text just like you would any other time you see the link buttons from your library!

We’re not certain, but we think this is the first time a small resource like ours has featured this kind of linking. If you want to know how to add this feature to your own database, contact us and we’ll fill you in.
