OCLC's OpenURL Referrer is now available for Internet Explorer! Previously available only for Firefox, this popular browser extension inserts OpenURLs into Google Scholar and Google News Archive search results. It also detects and makes links out of web COinS, such as those found in Wikipedia and Worldcat.org.
The extension can be downloaded for free at http://openly.oclc.org/openurlref/ OpenURL Referrer uses your institution's link resolver settings from the OCLC WorldCat Registry, so there is no need to manually configure the extension. Institutions can register their resolver in the OCLC WorldCat Registry by visiting http://worldcat.org/registry/ institutions. All institutions can register for free, even if they are not OCLC member libraries. The IE version leans much more heavily on the Worldcat Resolver Registry than the Firefox version does. The reason for this is that IE does not have a nice XUL-based way to make user interfaces, so we instead rely on the Registry to do baseurl management. I hope this proves to be useful.
