Journal and Article Locator (JAL): Federated Access to Electronic/Print Journals and Article Full-Text

Journal and Article Locator (JAL): Federated Access to Electronic/Print Journals and Article Full-Text
by Michael A. Norman and Mary C. Schlembach and Wendy Allen Shelburne and William H. Mischo (2006)

This paper presents an overarching view of our e-resource management activities and specifically describes the UIUC Library Journal and Article Locator (JAL) system. The JAL pulls together a number of disparate search environments into one unified display without having to search each one independently of the others. With JAL, the Library provides one-stop access to both print and electronic journals at the title and article level. Resource integration has become the key component to providing an all-encompassing search experience, giving users access to the full range of the Library’s collections. This year, our program will give a detailed view of how Journal and Article Locator integrates various resources into one search environment and outline what is involved with setting up this system.
