This project aims to take forward some of the recommendations and future work (listed in Appendix A) identified in the final report of the previous project: To increase the quantity of OpenURL Router activity data available as an aggregate, and maintain access to it. To support third parties, in particular the UK HE library community, in using the data to develop their own services.

Shared OpenURL Data (extension)

This project builds on previous projects at Edina which worked to make data from the openurl router service openly available so that other service providers could use it. Details of the data available from the openurl router are provided on the router website. Details of the aims and outputs of the previous project that made this data available are described in the final report from that project.
