OpenURL is an ANSI/NISO standard, so LinkSource - if it's OpenURL
compliant - will just work. Set $openurl.type=generic for it.
Unfortunately, LinkSource appears password-protected, so I haven't
actually seen it work myself. Natalie, who's testing the Louisiana
State (LSU) edition, reported it working though, see
Natalie also mentioned that LinkSource was unable to resolve OpenURLs
that describe an item using a DOI or Pubmed ID, and that they are
working with LinkSource to get this sorted out.
