Conquering E-Resource Document Delivery Rights by Using Your Link Resolver
MetadataShow full item record
As the University of Manitoba Libraries (UML) collection of electronic journals rapidly increased it became evident that we needed a way to distribute Document Delivery license restrictions to designated library staff. Initially this done by providing Document Delivery staff with periodic spreadsheets listing individual publishers and the applicable license terms. In November 2003, UML implemented SFX. As expected, use of electronic journals increased rapidly, and had an immediate impact on many library units and departments, including Document Delivery. In the absence of a commercial ERM, the Electronic Resources Unit at UML developed a system for distributing the status of Document Delivery rights to designated library staff on a title by title basis using SFX. Using this application, designated staff are now able to enter Document Delivery requests into the SFX Citation Linker and find the current license terms and conditions for Document Delivery, in addition to links to the full text (or print copy) of the citation. We would like to present to the conference attendees the procedures that we developed for setting up customized targets within the linking software, our categorization of licensing language, procedures for making sure that only the Document Delivery Staff can see these rights, how the system works, and the improvements we made to our Linking Software while setting up the system, for example, a new way to search PubMed ID (PMID) numbers from the Citation Linker. Attendees will learn how to use their institutions Link Resolver to implement a Document Delivery Rights Project.
