Gold Rush is an electronic resource management service produced by the non-profit Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries.  We currently have about 30 libraries that use our services around the U.S. and Canada including several medical libraries.  The software has four major areas of functionality:


  1. OpenURL link resolution
  2. A-Z journal-finder interface.  We have an easy-to-use out-of-the-box interface and we also offer an XML Gateway (web services layer) for sites who want to do their own customization or integration.
  3. Subscriptions (Electronic Resources Management)
  4. Reports (which includes content comparison tools)


We do maintain a central knowledgebase that currently represents over 1,300 title lists with over 100,000 journals.  You can select and modify these title lists as needed and we also have tools for you to upload your own custom lists (or key them in).  The knowledgebase includes primary publishers (e.g. Elsevier, Wiley Interscience, etc), aggregators (e.g. EBSCO, Gale, ProQuest, Wilson), and indexing/abstracting services.  So our interface will show both full-text as well as where something is indexed.


We license Gold Rush on an annual basis for $4,000/year for all of the above functionality regardless library size or the number of titles you have.

Let me know if you have additional questions or would be interested in setting up a free trial and Webinar.
