Appropriate Resolvers, Dynamically: Adding REL and Title Attributes To OpenURLs – A Prototype

Appropriate Resolvers, Dynamically: Adding REL and Title Attributes To OpenURLs - A Prototype – This simple prototype demonstrates an easier way to connect remote web resources and related local services. To use it, you first need a bookmarklet. Choose your institution from the following list (or, if yours is not listed, choose one that sounds interesting, and see the FAQ below). To get a bookmarklet, click and drag the link at the right side of the row with your institution, dropping the dragged link into your web browser favorites toolbar. This should leave a bookmark with the text of the link you dragged right there in your personal bookmark/favorites toolbar. Then, go to one of the services listed at bottom (you might want to do this in another browser window or tab, to keep this page open nearby). At that service’s suggested link, click the bookmarklet you just added to your toolbar. You should now see OpenURL resolver buttons, which are linked to your institution’s resolver as you normally see.
