Lorcan Dempsey is as usual thinking deeply, this time about deep linking.
OCLC is in the prototyping stage of creating a registry of OpenURL resolvers. On top of this registry, we will create an OpenURL gateway service that will accept an OpenURL request, identify the requestor, and redirect them to one or more OpenURL resolvers that are available to them.
Integral to this OpenURL registry will be an OPAC registry/gateway service to transform OpenURL requests into local OPAC deep-links. For example, an OpenURL request sent to the OpenURL registry's gateway for an ISBN will include a deep-link into the local library's OPAC for the item.
