How can we improve Summon?

Add Unpaywall database to the Summon index

Unpaywall is a service which harvests Open Access content directly from over 50,000 repositories. It's rapidly becoming the leading source of information about legal OA content across the web.

Unpaywall offer a 'database snapshot', a complete dump of everything we know about every Open Access DOI that exists.

I think it would be a great idea for Summon to incorporate this data in its index. It would allow a much greater level of direct linking to Open Access content for all Summon users.

(It's already possible to integrate Unpaywall's API with 360link for individual, article-by-article requests.)

        This would be an excellent addition to Summon

        I think this would be a significant addition to Summon. I hope Ex Libris pursues this.
