OpenURLs are already in use in digital library information services providing links between resources that are appropriate to the context of the end-user. The OpenURL Framework for Context-Sensitive Services, a systematic generalisation of the existing de facto standard OpenURL, is currently an ANSI/NISO `draft standard for trial use'. The zetoc current awareness service has implemented OpenURL links enabling its users to access services pertinent to discovered article records, including their full text. The `ContextObject' of the OpenURL Framework supplies a standard way of encoding the bibliographic citation information for a scholarly resource within a Dublin Core metadata record.
Keywords: OpenURL, Dublin Core metadata, bibliographic citation, context-sensitive links, current awareness service.
