Project hypothesis:
OpenURL Router data can be used to support recommendations
Project description
This is an invited proposal by JISC which takes forward the recommendations made in scoping activity related to collection and use of OpenURL data that might be available from institutional OpenURL resolvers and the national OpenURL router shared service which was funded between December 2008 - April 2009 by JISC. The work will be done in two stages: an initial stage exploring the steps required to make the data available openly, followed by making the data available and implementation of prototype service(s) using the data.
