vLib record lists and single records are now Zotero enabled and therefore citation information can be automatically captured into this firefox extension:
A short article about the vLib project has been published in the MPG internal newsletter MaxPlanckIntern 1/2007, p. 9 (in German)
A new version of the vLib portal was launched. An overview of new and revised features is available on the project pages
To provide extended services for books via the MPG/SFX Menu, a lookup in two union catalogs (SWB and GBV) has been set up
The new version of the MPG/SFX Server went into production today and introduced a new feature called the DOI CookiePusher. As a result, it may happen to you that clicking on a DOI link – e.g. doi:10.1016/j.jmmm.2004.11.295 – opens a sfx menu instead of directly connecting you to the publisher’s web site. The advantage is, that the MPG/SFX menu will provide you with a set of relevant services for the particular reference. Thus, if no electronic full text is available, you still may check for a print holding or order the document via your local library.
Please note: The feature requires that a cookie has been set on your computer before. Disallowing "doi.org" to set cookies will prevent you from being redirected to MPG/SFX.
More detailed information on the DOI CookiePusher is available on the vLib project pages (in German only).
