Wilson Uses SFX Technology in WilsonLink, Expands Its Art & Social Sciences Databases


Shigo, Kimberly, Computers in Libraries


H.W. Wilson has announced WilsonLink, a component of the new WilsonWeb service that uses SFX technology. WilsonLink provides extensive linking features with other online database vendors.

Powered by Ex Libris' SFX technology, WilsonLink allows researchers to click from citations on WilsonWeb databases to the full text of articles and related material from a multitude of sources, where the library subscribes to both WilsonWeb and the linked resource. Besides making research easier with access to a wider range of data, Wilson says that WilsonLink can save libraries money because it links to other open-URL sources without the need for the library to invest in its own link server.

The new WilsonWeb, a complete redesign of the database first introduced in 1997, made its debut in November 2002.

In a separate announcement, Wilson said that two periodicals databases, Art Full Text and Social Sciences Full Text, are being enhanced with increased journal coverage, new treatment of key specialties, and broader international scope.
