Interesting, does their link resolver API do article-level links, or just journal title level links?

I/you/one could easily write a plugin for Umlaut for their API, would be an interesting exersize.

The cheapest and best A to Z list i know is the german EZB:

This list is maintained by hunderds of libraries. You just mark those
journals you have licensed and that's it.

Not very widely known: they do also provide an API which you can use as
a free linkresolver. There are free tools you can plug into this API and
you've got your linkresolver.

The list is incredible accurate and you'll have almost no effort: any
change made by one library is valid for all.

Let me know if you need more information.

Hi Code4Lib-ers,

I want to chime in and say that I, too, enjoyed the streaming archive from the 

I also have a question: my library has a horribly antiquated A to Z list of 
databases and online resources (it's based in Access). We'd like to do something 
that looks more modern and is far more user friendly. I found a great article in 
the Code4Lib journal (issue 12, by Danielle Rosenthal&   Mario Bernado) about 
building a searchable A to Z list using Drupal. I'm also wondering what other 
institutions have done as far as in-house solutions. I know there're products we 
could buy, but, like everyone else, we don't have much money at the moment.

Thanks for any info or advice!
