AbstractUsers of federated search systems need to have direct access to the publisher's copy of the electronic full text or, at a minimum, a direct link to the publisher's website. In many cases, there exists a disparity between the data collections of the underlying databases, or collection nodes, which drive federated search sites. For instance, many of these collections include metadata associated with scientific journal articles, where neither the associated full text nor a link to publisher information is present. However, due to budget constraints or to not knowing the operational details of the data sources, many sites have not cultivated their collections to house these resources. This project will develop a real-time, full-text, source-provisioning web service that will allow the DOE¿s Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) and other digital library-based organizations to provide more electronic full-text resources to their users.
