Automatically resolving OpenURLs -- any time, any place

Ross Singer at Georgia Tech has put up a powerpoint called WAGging Google Scholar: Localizing & Contextualizing the Web. Have a look. It gives a bit of a frame of reference for the Latent OpenURL concept.

The point is that many users won't come to resources we've licensed through the library's 'front door.' Whether it comes from an A&I service or someone's online bibliography (we're getting RefWorks, you know) or even a weblog--whatever way it comes -- we should be able to get our readers to the right copy or to our ILL form.

We need to find a way to use our OpenURL technology regardless of the source of the bibliographic citation.
