Setting up localized linking for link resolvers
To take advantage of localized linking, your localized linking server must have a recognized BASE-URL. BASE-URLs are collected from library metadata users when they sign up with Crossref, and forwarded to the IDF for registration.
Once the BASE-URL is registered, go to
to download a cookie, which contains the URL for your local content server. This cookie makes your browser OpenURL-enabled, which means that the Crossref system will redirect relevant requests to your local resolver.
Learn more about BASE-URL and the cookie pusher script.
If you upgrade or change your local link resolver, please send us your new BASE-URL.
