Linking Google Scholar to academic libraries

Library Journal has a news item this morning about a Google Scholar pilot project that is linking the service to participating academic libraries. Google Scholar is creating a link, through the use of SFX buttons and similar services, to local OpenURL link resolvers. This allows patrons to find items listed in Google Scholar’s results in local libraries. Common services include finding full-text articles, searching the local catalog, or requesting an item through ILL or document delivery.
