Seattle, WA, January 3, 2014 - Husson University is working with Serials Solutions, a ProQuest business, to improve usage of the W. Tom and Bonnie Sawyer Library's resources. In pursuit of a solution to increase the number of full-text downloads, the university selected the 360 Link OpenURL link resolver to offer their students quick and easy access to full-text resources in their collection.

Husson has been educating in Bangor, Maine since 1898. In support of the university's commitment to increase and improve access to the library's full-text resources, 360 Link will deliver both the highest number of links and the most accurate links, even when metadata is missing. Key to the university's decision was the strong foundation of the service coupled with the most complete, accurate, and up-to-date knowledgebase available. The knowledgebase behind 360 Link sets the industry standard with authoritative, enriched, and continuously updated data.
