Linking of electronic resources to save research time was discussed. The library at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology utilized the features of Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) to create a more dynamic and simpler searching process. Most commercial online databases allow the subscribing library to adapt access to the local environment via the local administrator component. Some commercial databases, such as a ProQuest allow the librarian to include information about the format, years of coverage, and a link to the online location if it is an online journal.
