St. Paul, MN -- July 14, 2020. Third Iron, LLC, a leading information technology company developing innovative services for libraries, publishers and their users, announced the availability of LibKey integration for libraries subscribing to the Pro version of the Trip Database. LibKey delivers fast, one-click access to millions of library-subscribed and Open Access articles. Trip is the leading evidence-based medicine search tool used by researchers around the world.
"Researchers overwhelming prefer using LibKey for direct, immediate access to articles over the slow, multi-step process of a link resolver," said Kendall Bartsch, CEO at Third Iron. "We are excited to partner with Trip to help save researchers valuable time and provide more reliable linking to full text when they are using this important database." President and Chief Librarian John Seguin continued, "The Trip team makes LibKey integration easy. A library only needs to request an API key from Third Iron, then send this to Trip. The Trip team will complete the integration on behalf of the requesting library."
Libraries interested in integrating LibKey with Trip may request an API key from Third Iron by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
