IOTA is an initiative that makes use of log files from various institutions and vendors to analyze element frequency and patterns contained within OpenURL strings.

The reports created from this analysis inform vendors about where to make improvements to their OpenURL strings so that the maximum number of OpenURL requests resolve to a correct record.
