Hi Angela,

Thanks for bringing up this topic!

So many individual articles are being designated open access - and we have
no ability to connect our users to them through our A-Z lists or Open URL!

A faculty member asked me recently why an individual article in a Royal
Society of Chemistry journal that he can access through Google Scholar
isn't "not available" when he uses 360 Link.  It turns out the article is
Gold open access.

I've looked at a new product called OAFinder
<http://www.1science.com/oafindr> from 1science.  I think this is exactly
the problem they are trying to provide the solution for.  But.. I'm not
sure if we can incorporate this product into our discovery service or
A-Z/Open URL.

If anyone knows of other solutions, please reply to the list!
