    Ulrichsweb: OpenURL Link Resolver Template for ISSN or Title

    • Product: Ulrichs

    How can I get my link resolver to point directly to an individual serial in Ulrichsweb?

    Ulrichsweb can be both a target and a source of OpenURL links with your library's link resolver. If you do not know the ISSN, or if an ISSN is not yet assigned to the serial, you may attempt to link to a serial using its title.
    Using a title may result in less-specific results than using the serial's ISSN.

    This template lets you point directly to an ISSN in Ulrichsweb regardless whether the publication status of the ISSN is current, ceased, suspended, title history, or merged/incorporated.
