How can we improve Alma?

Add oadoi.org as an option in uresolver

https://oadoi.org/ has recently launched with an open API. It automates linking to an open access version of articles using the DOI (eg finding them in subject repositories or institutional repositories). From a very quick tiny-sample experiment, this could fill about 50% of recent articles that show in Primo for us as "no full-text available".

At least one library has worked to make this available in their installation of SFX - see https://devtools.mpdl.mpg.de/projects/vlib/wiki/SFXTargets/oaDOIgetFullTxt Could something like this be added as an option to Alma's uResolver?

The desired behaviour is that oadoi.org displays as an option if the API's value of is_free_to_read is true. When the link is followed it would go to http://oadoi.org/{rft.doi}.

This should obviously be an optional service: ideally institutions should be able to activate it and order it as desired in the Online Services Order.

        It would be great to get a date on this. I have just seen kopernio (alpha testing) which includes resolver as well as OA version finding.

        Is this available yet? When it is available, will you be informing libraries who wish to implement the enhancement how to get it done?

        Hi Dana
        Is there an estimated date for this enhancement? We heard that it is already available in SFX
