)-- WT Cox Subscriptions has entered into an agreement to purchase Journal Finder™ from The University of North Carolina Greensboro. Journal Finder, the first OpenURL Link Resolver to go into production in the United States was created, designed, and has been maintained by the Electronic Resources and Information Technology staff of UNCG. The product gives library patrons easy access to the electronic resources the library subscribes to. Journal Finder has continually been enhanced from the early days with additional usage reports, expanded linking, ERM, the inclusion of over 11,000 free and Open Access titles, along with many additional features. Journal Finder is now being used by over 40 libraries and has a solid reputation because of the dedication and expertise of the Electronic Resources and Information Department at UNCG.
Leading the Journal Finder team for WT Cox Subscriptions will be Michael Markwith. Markwith is currently responsible for Academic Sales for WT Cox Subscriptions. Before working with WT Cox, Markwith was President of TDnet; Vice-President of Academic Sales at Swets Blackwell; and CEO, Swets & Zeitlinger (USA & Canada). Markwith has a strong background in serials, electronic access and is a long-time active member of several library organizations (including ALA & NASIG).
Acquiring Journal Finder gives WT Cox Subscriptions a very unique opportunity to provide a product designed and created from within a library and expand it to a broader user base.
Journal Finder will be folded into WT Cox's existing service portfolio, allowing WT Cox Subscriptions to strengthen its capability to provide access and e-management resources to its wide customer base.
