The Ümlaut is an open source OpenURL middleware layer intended to improve the link resolving chain by analyzing incoming citations and intelligently querying resources to better enable access to them. The Ümlaut takes multiple approaches for locating items such as conference proceedings, preprints, postprints and gray literature utilizing search engines, Amazon, social citation managers and more. By utilizing the Worldcat registry, it is also personalizable and geospatially aware of available collections allowing access to all resources available to the user beyond the subscriptions of the Ümlaut's host institution. This talk will cover the history, architecture and community of this project.

  4. 4. Ümwhatnow? An OpenURL middleware layer No need to recreate a means to link to journals, ebooks, etc. Queries: Pubmed, Crossref SFX Local catalog, consortial catalog, Worldcat.org in a variety of ways (xISBN, etc.) Amazon (if ISBN) Google API, Yahoo API Social Bookmarkers: del.icio.us, Connotea, CiteULike, etc.
  5. 5. Why we needed Ümlaut Georgia Tech motivations Needed data for Communicat Couldn't resolve conference proceedings Preprints, Postprints, Working Papers Tired of quot;clicking and prayingquot; Johns Hopkins motivations Print holdings directly on page Catalog MARC 856 URLs Document delivery requests Loosely coupled interface flexibility --->>> Umlaut as platform
  6. 6. Tour of an Ümlaut A. Direct link with banner http://findit.library.jhu.edu/go/108175 B. Full menu /go/108175?umlaut.skip_resolve_menu=false C. Library holdings on page http://findit.library.jhu.edu/go/108372 D. Book citation http://findit.library.jhu.edu/go/108361 JHÜmlaut

  8. 8. Interesting Engineering Just a mention... Local configuration Background services
  9. 9. Fütüre Feature wishlist Rochester “Getting Users Fulltext” page-skipping clone Google Books search? link to OCLC Identities xISBN/thingISBN use? Enhanced serial metadata Public access journal articles quot;Cited byquot; service Enhance metadata for citation manager export. Integrate local document delivery services Connectors for other knowledge bases
  10. 10. Fütüre U3 -- document-oriented database as store instead of rdbms Performance improvements Relying on web services is inherently latent Caching? Precoordinating more data? User-centric collection
