Easily connect to open access resources
MasterKey Express is an affordable Cloud-based solution for leveraging open access content in the library. It currently supports more than one thousand open access resources, and new resources are constantly added.
Open Access: A Challenge and an Opportunity for Libraries
While some open resources are well served by Google, many are part of the ‘deep web,’ which is not well accessed by conventional search engines and library discovery tools.
With the right tools, these resources represent a great opportunity for libraries to extend valuable resources to their patrons at near-zero cost.
Flexible. Powerful. Easy-to-use.
MasterKey Express can incorporate just about any resource, including local collections and content repositories, library catalogs, and subscription databases. It enables the librarian to select the resources of interest and organize them into meaningful categories. Patrons can search across resources from a single search box, and receive a unified, relevance-ranked, de-duplicated result list.
