First Library of Congress Database To Implement OpenURL Now Online
From the announcement, "The Handbook of Latin American Studies Online (HLAS)=
edited by the Library of Congress Hispanic Division, is the first Library
database to implement the =93OpenURL=94 protocol. OpenURL provides a standar=
mechanism for linking from citations and bibliographic records to Web servic=
such as full text, library catalogs and Web search engines. Institutions wit=
local link resolver - Web-linking software - may now link directly from HLAS
Online records to the Web resources of their choice."

Congress and the Princeton University Library."
