Abstract

In our previous article (Digital Access Brokers: clustering and comparison (Part I - locator services), we covered a total of twelve browser extensions under one broad group viz. Group A- Locations, Citations & References. This paper covers another twenty-two more browser extensions under four major groups viz. Group B- Summarizers, Recommenders & Commenters; Group C- Multi Functional; Group D - Resource Integration; and Group E- Citation Map Builder. All of these tools assist researchers in a variety of ways in obtaining content, both open-access and licenced content owned by various publishers or databases.
