Serials Solutions has had many FEDLINK members express interest beyond Serials Solutions' industry-leading service - the Access and Management Suite (AMS) - and have asked for pricing and information about their federated search, OpenURL link resolver, and MARC records updating services.

The FEDLINK group purchase program for Serials Solutions is extended to these services as well. Libraries starting or renewing a subscription to any of Serials Solutions' services receive a 25% discount off of their list prices. 

For those aren't familiar with Serials Solutions, their complete suite of
services helps libraries meet the need of different patron and search types, while promoting the use of electronic collections.  

-          Central Search: a feature-rich federated search solution that
uses keywords to search across databases 

-          Article Linker: the industry-leading hosted OpenURL link resolver
links to specific items in your collection

-          Full MARC Records: updating service delivers complete e-serial
access through your online catalog and maintains the relevance of your ILS, in this new digital era

-          AMS: management and access tools that help you promote and
evaluate your collection, including the E-Journal Portal and Overlap

 Each solution leverages Serials Solutions' accurate data and enables a
library to use a single unified knowledgebase for their e-resource
management and access needs. In addition, their hosted applications make life simpler for librarians since there is no software or hardware to
purchase or install.
