SWITCH Library Consortium Selects 360 Link

SWITCH Library Consortium in Milwaukee has selected 360 Link from Serials Solutions® 360 Link to provide users the most accurate, up-to-date results in support of the consortium's commitment to increase and improve access to member library’s collections and showcase the materials owned by the SWITCH libraries.

SWITCH Library Consortium, recognized for providing cutting edge technology to its eight member libraries in the Milwaukee area, selected 360 Link, from Serials Solutions®, a ProQuest® business. 360 Link, OpenURL link resolver, will provide the users the most accurate, up-to-date results in support of the consortiums commitment to increase and improve access to member library’s collections and showcase the materials owned by the SWITCH libraries.

With an original subscription to 360 Core, the entire SWITCH Library Consortium was influenced to migrate to 360 Link once some of its members made the transition. Key to their decision was the strong foundation of the service, the Serials Solutions knowledgebase. Knowledgebase enables 360 Link to deliver both the highest number of links and the most accurate links, even when metadata is missing. 360 Link, powered by the most complete, accurate, and up-to-date knowledgebase available, allows the member libraries to offer their users quick and easy access to full-text resources in their collections. These features and more were essential in SWITCH Library Consortium’s selection of 360 Link.
