    On July 23, 2013 the following updates to these linking queries will be released:
    • DOI linking will no longer be the preferred linking option as all articles may not have a DOI indexed by OhioLINK
    • DOI Linking will now include double quotes around the DOI parameter to improve the result return
    • Chapter level linking will be updated to: "BOOK_TITLE "&smode=advanced
    Please note these new inbound linking targets are search queries and not an OpenURL or direct linking format. Patrons will be taken to a result set based on the citation metadata values passed to 360 Link instead of the full text of the article.

    If your library has opted to not migrate to LinkSource, no action is required (360 Link updating our target was the only necessary action).

    If your library is migrating to LinkSource, please contact OhioLINK directly for additional assistance or find more information here:
