Using just the entitlement information from the publishers' websites 
isn't sufficient, since many full texts are licensed on other platforms, 
especially aggregators like EBSCO or ProQuest. So unless aggregators 
take part (which seems very unlikely for EBSCO and ProQuest since they 
have their own discovery platforms) or link resolvers are integrated, 
users won't have access to large parts of the licensed content via 
GetFTR. Google Scholar covers lots of publishers, also provides access 
to free versions and integrates link resolvers, so I'm wondering why 
users should switch from Google Scholar (or a discovery tool provided by 
the library) to GetFTR?

Best regards,
