eResources types: why can I drill down to full text in Applied Technology Source (EBSCO), but Full Text Online doesn't take me to the PDF?

Because EBSCO is forcing the EDS custom linking through Full Text Finder, and it has to have an EXACT MATCH to resolve (even then, rarely)+

OK - that's what I figured. I guess I need to disable that in the profile. It must be left over from our EDS trial.

I think this exact-match thing is typical with any link resolver especially if you include year, page number, other details.

EBSCO has been updating their link resolver to OpenURL 1.0 for a year now. It seems to be an incredible challenge! Current is .1 I think?

The EBSCOhost implementation of OpenURL inbound linking certainly leaves a lot to be desired. PQ generally much better.

Seems like. Hope it's easy as ditching the link resolver off the profile.
