OpenURL Resolver Registry

Lorcan

This is a pointer to a new Alpha service from OCLC, the OpenURL Resolver Registry. This is a nice idea which potentially extends the utility of the OpenURL by providing a switch between a user/user application and an appropriate resolver.

OCLC is utilizing a phased approach in this project. The alpha phase, which is underway, includes an OpenURL resolver registry for user input of resolver data and a gateway which can redirect OpenURLs to registered resolvers based on the requester’s IP address. The registry will be seeded with data from the OCLC FirstSearch administrative module and grow with further partner and user contributions. [OpenURL Resolver [OCLC]]
