3 c2001 Endeavor Information Systems, Inc. What Does A Linking System Do? It accepts metadata from a Source Based on the metadata and information in its database, it determines what links should be presented to the user, and it then builds and presents those links. Because the library has control over the contents of the database, the linking system should only present links that are relevant and accessible to the user. Linking & CrossRef

Full text as in Science Direct or Academic Press or American Mathematical Society Extended Services like: –Document Delivery sites –General interest web sites –Any service for which the system can build a URL Linking & CrossRef

11 c2001 Endeavor Information Systems, Inc. What Is CrossRef? Co-operative effort between 70 learned publishers Non-profit trade association Enables identifier-based linking using DOIs Registers DOIs and URLs for member publishers Provides metadata lookup service to enable link resolution Funded by look-up and deposit fees Linking & CrossRef

14 c2001 Endeavor Information Systems, Inc. What Is The Appropriate Copy Problem? The DOI Handle System has several inherent problems –It does not know if the user’s library has a linking server and does not know the information in the linking server’s database. –It only registers URLs for rights holders (publishers) and knows nothing about aggregator sites or local copy (electronic or hardcopy). Linking & CrossRef

15 c2001 Endeavor Information Systems, Inc. Appropriate Copy Prototype A prototype group led by Dale Flecker of Harvard that is testing an architecture that will put a library’s linking server back in the loop. Linking & CrossRef
