Writing about web page http://edina.ed.ac.uk/
SerialsSolutions provide us with the E-Journals data on the E-Resources section of the Library's website. The data is also used to update the library catalogue, and the RIU/eLab project to create Build-a-Link is built around that same data.
SerialsSolutions are embarking on a JISC funded project with EDINA (see related web page) to invesetigate the transfer of their records about University subscriptions to SUNCAT, the UK serials catalogue.
The implications of such a project could be far reaching. The sharing of data about subscriptions could be something that Google Scholar could tap into, to make it a more powerful tool for our users.
