The University of Florida (UF) libraries and Elsevier are collaborating to widen access to articles authored or co-authored by UF authors and published by Elsevier. Both organizations are committed to supporting researcher success and believe working together will more effectively widen public access, improve compliance with current and future funder policies, and facilitate efficient and responsible sharing of scholarly journal articles through the university's institutional repository. This presentation will provide an overview and brief demonstration of how these services are becoming interoperable through a strategic alliance.

Smart linking from repository to publisher platform can help to:
• Maximize Research Impact – citation metrics and alt metrics are used to assess the impact of research so it is essential that these data are aggregated and shared, which is easier if the data are not fragmented across platforms
• Connect Researchers to the Best Available Version – dynamic ingest of publisher holdings information and metadata into university IR allows local management with delivery of the best (published) version, and also addresses the concern of some authors about reliance on a pre-publication manuscript for public access
• Realize Cost Savings and Efficiency – this collaboration provides an alternative to, but does not preclude, self-archiving; facilitates better compliance, impact tracking and reporting; increases the visibility of and access to the scholarship of UF authors; and establishes a new, and valued, library service to the campus and beyond, with minimal initial investment and low ongoing costs
• Ensure Reliability and Trustworthiness –access to errata and retraction information are ensured, maintaining article integrity
