Link resolver (SFX) support RRS feed

  • Question

  • MAS is a very good scholarly search engine, thanks for that. For our institution’s (Utrecht University) patrons it would be even better if there was a way to add a link resolver (in our case ExLibris SFX). A link resolver takes the metadata from an OpenURL in your system, does a check in a knowledge base with information on our institution’s holdings and offers patrons options to directly get to the full text in our subscribed journals and databases. This is something that is possible in virtually all indexing databases and also in Google Scholar, Worldcat etc. It seems to me it is currently not possible in MAS. Could you please consider supporting link resolvers? It is only this bit of functionality that would persuade me to advise all students & staff to move from Google Scholar to MAS.
