OCLC's OpenURL Referrer is now available for Internet Explorer!  
Previously available only for Firefox, this popular browser extension  
inserts OpenURLs into Google Scholar and Google News Archive search  
results.  It also detects and makes links out of web COinS, such as  
those found in Wikipedia and Worldcat.org.

The extension can be downloaded for free at

OpenURL Referrer uses your institution's link resolver settings from  
the OCLC WorldCat Registry, so there is no need to manually configure  
the extension. Institutions can register their resolver in the OCLC  
WorldCat Registry by visiting

All institutions can register for free, even if they are not OCLC  
member libraries.
