KBART and the OpenURL: 

Increasing E-Resource Use through Improved User Access 

April 8, 2009
1:00 - 2:30 p.m. (Eastern Time)

About the Webinar

Knowledge Bases and Related Tools (KBART) is a joint project with the UK Serials Group (UKSG) to improve the quality and workflow of data in knowledge bases used for OpenURL linking. The Working Group is expected to release initial results of its work in the spring of 2009.


Working group members will discuss the group's draft recommended practice in the areas of terminology, supply chain workflow, effective transfer of metadata to knowledge bases, needed education, and plans for Phase 2 of the project.
