Through the OpenURL Gateway in the WorldCat Registry, RefShare “owners” can change the OpenURL link in their shared folder to point to their up-to-date WorldCat Registry information. This means that RefShare viewers, from any WorldCat-registered university, can now be directed to their full-text access. Before the OpenURL Gateway, users from outside the instiutions could not be redirected.
