KBART - improving content visibility through collaboration

Author:

Abstract

In recent years, link resolver technology has become integral to ensuring successful institutional access to electronic content. The corresponding take-up of OpenURL compliance amongst content providers in response has resulted in a global solution to the 'appropriate copy' problem. However, this solution is only effective if the knowledge base behind the link resolver is up to date, accurate and comprehensive and this is a factor that is often overlooked in establishing OpenURL compliance. This article explores the importance of OpenURL and knowledge bases to the information community as a whole and provides an overview and update of the role that the KBART (Knowledge Bases and Related Tools) project has to play in improving knowledge base metadata.
