Third Iron boosts library resources with LibKey Link and LibKey.io
Third Iron, LLC, an information technology company developing innovative services for libraries, is launching two new LibKey services: LibKey Link and LibKey.io, increasing access to articles for research.
LibKey Link delivers one-click access to tens of millions of library-subscribed and open access articles from any database where a link resolver is used today.
LibKey.io is a website that resolves DOI and PubMed ID searches through library and open access sources, all in one-click; "libkey.io/" may also be added as a prefix to any DOI or PMID, connecting researchers to the article from their library resources.
"LibKey has been used by libraries in their discovery layers and the PubMed database for over two years and the results have been overwhelmingly positive," said Kendall Bartsch, CEO at Third Iron. "For researchers, LibKey is much more intuitive to use than traditional link resolvers, the links to content are more reliable, and one-click access to content is saving countless hours otherwise spent clicking through menus and waiting for pages to load.”
LibKey Link and LibKey.io join LibKey Discovery and LibKey Nomad to create a comprehensive digital access solution for libraries.
LibKey Link is a unique URL customized for each Third Iron customer that may be used by libraries anywhere their link resolver base URL is configured.
