Link resolver - Link Source

The Library has subscribed to Link Source from Ebsco. Linksource is a link resolver which will create links between database article and so make access to full text more accessible.

For example, if a journal is indexed in Scopus and an article in that journal is full text in another database, a button will appear on the Scopus screen linking you to the fulltext article in the other database.

In setting Link source up, we have come across a lot of problems, mainly due to different standards and linking protocols used by databases, so the system isnt perfect. Let us know if a particular link doesn't work. We need as much detail as you can give us, so we can backtrack and find the problem.

Look for this button!
