OpenURLquery (base URL+ metadata string)
link resolver/knowledge base
target (cited)articleOpenURL basics
Contains information about web resources (global)
e.g. what journal holdings are available in JSTOR
and how you link to articles in them
Contains information about the resources a library has licensed/owns (local)
May contain electronic and print holdings (in addition to a number of other services)
Used by a link resolver to direct institutional users to the ‘appropriate copy’
What is a KnowledgeBase?
It tracks the library’s content and identifies locations for the content
It knows which versions the library is able to access
So – it’s the only place that can get a user to the “appropriate copy” … the one that his/her library has licensed.
The KnowledgeBase’s Central Role in the Library
Content linking is more accurate for end users
Increase in content usage
Maximum reach for authors and editors
Better return on investment for library
Protection of revenue for content providers
Benefits for All
OA has gotten more popular
Importance of facilitating access to both paid and free peer-reviewed, quality publications (not just fee-based material).
The decision was made not to differentiate between Free and OA for KBART.
Needed to strike a balance between noting significant OA content and making the file understandable.
Libraries purchase titles as a consortium
Consortium administrators and librarians need the same title-level information from their consortium-purchased packages as they do from “vanilla” publisher packages.
Difficult to obtain accurate consortium-specific title lists.
Phase 1 – Universally accepted standardized publisher metadata, regularly distributed AND available on demand
Phase 2 – Broad adoption, Consortia, More content type coverage (eBooks, conference proceedings), Open Access materials
Phase 3? – Even more content types, automated delivery, institutional metadata????

Review the requirements (data samples available)
Format your title lists accordingly.
Self-check to ensure they conform to the recommended practice
Ensure that you have a process in place for regular data updates
