In Spring 2005, I was tasked with finding a replacement for our homegrown Journal Title Finder. We formed a committee to evaluate products and quickly decided to include an OpenURL resolver as part of the solution. The commitee eventually recommended GoldRush--remote hosted, inexpensive, changes appeared in real time, and includes subscription management.
