AIRway Project brings together linking services and institutional repositories
"Librarians and information technology professionals in Japan and the United States have developed a new way to combine institutional repositories with library linking services that could change the way researchers access scholarly information. The development, reported in the March/April issue of D-Lib Magazine, enables library users to access locally stored research articles when they follow citations in scientific journals or indexed in databases. The AIRway Project has received support from the research and development program of the 'Next-Generation Scientific Information Resources Infrastructure' of the National Institute of Informatics in Japan"
