[Ref-Links] Openly Jake

jake.openly.com is now officially open at http://jake.openly.com/

For those on the list unfamiliar with Jake, Jake is an open-source 
project (started at http://jake.med.yale.edu/) devoted to making it 
easy to find, manage and link to journals at libraries. Jake has 
gathered title lists of almost 200 different journal aggregations and 
contains more than a quarter million records. Jake is far from being 
a finished thing, but it is already quite useful.

Jake is a potentially important development for multiple resolution 
of CrossRef DOI links. As of this version, Openly Jake understands 
article oriented non-DOI OpenURL links. We have studied how to add 
DOI capability to Jake, and we've concluded that it will be 
straightforward and will make a lot of sense to do it. Because Jake 
is free, there is an excellent chance that Jake can get installed in 
thousands of libraries to deliver locally configured basic serials
