OpenURL 1.0 Resolver

This site demonstrates the default installation of the open-source OCLC OpenURL 1.0 implementation. Like the OpenURL 1.0 protocol itself, this implementation is highly abstract allowing for an infinite range of entity citation types and resolution outcomes. The default service is an echo of the OpenURL 1.0 request formatted in HTML.

These OpenURL 1.0 request examples were taken from The OpenURL Framework for Context-Sensitive Services

Example 23: By-Reference OpenURL Transport using HTTP GET
Example 25: By-Value OpenURL Transport using HTTP GET
Example 26: By-Value OpenURL Transport using HTTP POST
Example 27: Inline OpenURL Transport using HTTP GET
Example 28: Inline OpenURL Transport using HTTP POST
