National OpenURL service

Lorcan

A national OpenURL service has just been announced in the UK.

The OpenURL Router works by offering a central registry of institutions’ OpenURL resolvers. An institution registers details of its resolver just once, at openurl.ac.uk. When the resolver has been registered at openurl.ac.uk, any service provider can provide users from that institution with OpenURL links to their resolver. [The OpenURL Router]
