When someone outside The University of Auckland tries the “Find Full Text” button from their DSsace repository item, they will be redirected to their own OpenURL servers as they are listed in the WorldCat Registry. If a subscription exists, s/he will be able to use her own authentication to be connected to full-text content. A configuration setting allows the system administrator to choose the appropriate fields to cross walk to the OpenURL elements. When a DOI is available this is used first, if not then other metadata elements are used to construct the OpenURL search string. This implementation solves the "appropriate copy" issue and provides for multiple choices if available.
The OCLC Developer Network supports the use of OCLC Web Services—a set of tools and APIs that expose data and services for WorldCat and our member libraries and partner institutions or companies. learn more »
