Migration to new link resolver

Overstap naar nieuwe Linkresolver

A number of library databases do not provide access to full text articles. These bibliographic databases, such as Scopus, Web of Science, Sociological Abstracts or EconLit, include a button to our link resolver, however; often in the form of the Erasmus signature. 

When you click on this button, the link resolver checks to determine whether EUR has access to the article in a full text database, for example JSTOR, Cambridge Journals Online, PsycARTICLES or Wiley Online Library, and takes you there. 

The University Library is preparing to migrate from the 360Link resolver to OCLC’s link resolver this autumn. The migration will be completed in January 2016, following the current transition period. As a result, you will sometimes encounter the old and sometimes the new link resolver. 

In most cases, you will not notice this, and you will automatically be taken to the article’s full text. If the link resolver determines that EUR is not entitled to access the full text of an article, a no results page will appear with the message ‘We were unable to find any links to this item’ (or in the Dutch version: ‘We konden geen koppelingen vinden naar dit artikel’). 

For any questions about the link resolver, use the Ask a Question form. For any questions about the availability of a specific article, include as much reference information as possible, including the database you used to search for the article.
