The link resolver «Get it at Lib4RI» is a fast and convenient way to get from the reference in a database, catalogue or search engine to the corresponding full text. In many databases licensed by the Lib4RI you find this button of our link resolver: Once you click on this button, the link resolver will check if we have an electronic version of the document and, if so, provides a link to the article or book on the publisher's website. If the library can't offer an electronic full text of the article or book, the link resolver menu gives you several other options to acquire the document as well as additional services (see below).
- Borrow Books
- Open Access
- Document Delivery
- Link Resolver
The Link Resolver Menu
Once you click on the «Get it at Lib4RI» button, a menu will open in a new window listing all services for that particular record. Not all services will always appear for every record. Which services are presented, depends on the database you are searching and the information available for the particular reference.
Integration with your Reference Management Application
You are able to integrate Lib4RI's link resolver into several reference management programs, such as EndNote and Zotero. This allows you to quickly access or download full-text articles for records in your reference collection. Below are instructions to modify your settings in these programs to activate this functionality.
For EndNote (X4 or later):
1. In EndNote (desktop application) go to Edit > Preferences… > Find Full Text > OpenURL Path
2. Enter this URL: http://sfx.ethz.ch/sfx_lib4ri?
3. Select one or more references in your EndNote library and select References > Find Full-Text. Endnote will try to locate full texts through Lib4RI's link resolver and begin downloading PDFs if available.
