2011 Midwinter ALCTS CRS Holdings Forum: Holdings information in Electronic Content


2011 ALA Midwinter ALCTS CRS Holdings Forum

Time: Saturday, January 8, 2011, 4:00 pm-5:30 pm

Place: SDCC-Room 30C

Forum Title:Holdings information in Electronic Content


Ensuring that users can access digital content remains a key mission for
librarians and content providers. If everything works properly, a patron
should be able to click on a link and almost magically be connected to the
content that they need. What’s behind the click? Whether this simple action
builds upon data quality in a knowledgebase, the link structure behind
OpenURL, or DOI-linking functionality from citations, many people and
services are responsible for this magic. Come learn about KBART
(Knowledgebases and Related Tools) and IOTA (Improving OpenURLs Through
Analytics) and discover how CrossRef simplifies access across the internet
through DOI-linking.
