LibKey is our next generation, AI-based linking technology that provides immediate, reliable, one-click access to PDF and HTML article content,” said Kendall Bartsch, CEO at Third Iron. “It is clear that researchers want paths to content that are easier, more reliable, and faster than what traditional link resolvers provide.

“We are very excited at how the integration with LibKey offers eReserve Plus customers and their patrons the opportunity to explore resources more thoroughly and to customize and configure their LibKey presentation to best suit the practices at their institution.” Said Karey Patterson CEO at eReserve.
“The combination of eReserve Plus’ reading list capabilities with LibKey gives students the option to find associated resources, faculty can also review analytics related to student engagement as well explore containing documents (e.g. Journal Issue), which may yield better use of paid for resources,” said Michael Harrison, eReserve Plus CTO.
