Gold Rush: Integrated Access to Aggregated Journal Text Through the OPAC
Online public access catalogs, Gold Rush, Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries
Faced with the challenge of providing access to full-text content offered through journal aggregator services, the University of Denver found, a better way to integrate costly aggregator journal titles with traditional information resources through Gold Rush. Gold Rush is a database maintained by the Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries that allows the serials unit to populate the local OPAC with a single URL for each journal title with aggregator content. With one URL to maintain, the unit limits the amount of time devoted to electronic journals management.
