|Drupal Link Resolver module||
The Link Resolver Module provides Drupal with a local mechanism to add and maintain institutional link resolver data (institution name, resolver url, etc). Data can be added manually but is also "automagically" captured via the WorldCat OpenURL Gateway IP lookup service as users visit your site, imported en masse via CSV (a default list is included in the module) or added via a WorldCat Registry Institutional ID lookup.

|OpenURL Gateway at The University of Auckland||
When someone outside The University of Auckland tries the “Find Full Text” button from their DSsace repository item, they will be redirected to their own OpenURL servers as they are listed in the WorldCat Registry. If a subscription exists, s/he will be able to use her own authentication to be connected to full-text content. A configuration setting allows the system administrator to choose the appropriate fields to cross walk to the OpenURL elements. When a DOI is available this is used first, if not then other metadata elements are used to construct the OpenURL search string. This implementation solves the "appropriate copy" issue and provides for multiple choices if available.

PrimateLit is a free bibliographic database for primatology that relies on the WorldCat Registry for OpenURL recognition. This OpenURL recognition provides full text access to articles for any institution from any location.

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.

Zotero [zoh-TAIR-oh] is a free, easy-to-use Firefox extension to help you collect, manage, and cite your research sources. It lives right where you do your work — in the web browser itself.
