There are a variety of new features in the current 1.1 version.

The features below have already been integrated into LibX Version 1.0.1. and above.
LibX Enhancement to Serials Solutions OpenURL resolver page:
Serials Solutions (an OpenURL linking server provider)
currently does not support OpenURLs that refer to books and that contain an ISBN.
As long as Serials Solutions does not provide such support, LibX will. It places
a link inside the resolver page that leads the user to the desired book in the catalog
via a "Search by ISBN" link. The link is clearly marked as a cue
() to distinguish it from the original content of the page.
Once SerSol fixes this problem on their end, as they should, the LibX-created link will quietly go away without requiring an update of the extension.
This is an example of where LibX can provide an enhanced version of a library's electronic services, without having to wait for a vendor to implement a desired fix or improvement.
|A second example is when the OpenURL contains a DOI which CrossRef's database does not properly resolve. For example, when queried about 10.1109/PADS.2005.25, CrossRef's database responds with an error. We add a direct link to http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/PADS.2005.25 which works. Note that the fault here appears to lie with CrossRef, not Serials Solutions. In any event, the user will obtain the desired article.|
Enduser Customizations Users can now set a preference as to how search results will be displayed: either in the same tab, in a new tab, in a new window, or in a new tab that is then brought to the front.
