RE: GWLA letter

If properly configured, local link resolvers based on the OpenURL
standard may already used to draw together and link to multiple
versions of articles, including versions in open access
repositories which should always be displayed alongside toll
access versions. Furthermore, they are used as hubs to direct the
reader to various "related" resources. I see no reason why such
tools should loose their importance in an environment where most
(but probably not all) journals go OA.
