Journal Finder


The first OpenURL Link Resolver to go into production in the United States, was created, designed, and has been maintained by the Electronic Resources and Information Technology staff of UNCG.


Now owned by and available from WT Cox Subscriptions, Journal Finder gives library patrons easy access to the electronic resources the library subscribes to. Journal Finder is a combination of an A-Z list, Link Resolver and a very friendly and easy-to-use ERM.


Journal Finder has continually been enhanced from its beginning with additional usage reports, expanded linking, ERM and more than 13,000 free and Open Access titles, along with many additional features. Journal Finder is now being used by over 70 libraries and has a solid reputation and very loyal fan base.


Journal Finder was developed by librarians for the library user.

As we move towards election time, I’m sure we’re all reading about what measures and initiatives we’ll be voting for and against (because we’re all responsible citizens who will be voting in the upcoming elections right?). What’s cool about EveryLibrary is that they will exclusively be dedicated to advocating for library initiatives, connecting with local communities to get voter support. Libraries can use all the help they can get at election time. A vote for libraries means more hours, more funding, and more jobs. This is something all library school students can get behind.

Advocacy is a very important aspect of librarianship. We often hear about the doom and gloom of library hours being cut and budgets being slashed. Professionals, new and young, are finding…
