Description Chris Cormack 2010-05-21 01:13:07 UTC

---- Reported by jwagner@ptfs.com 2009-09-15 14:08:07 ----

I'd like to get some feedback as to whether people think this would be useful.  One of my sites asked for a search link from Koha to their SFX OpenURL resolver. (They're using the COinS / OpenURL now, but that apparently requires a browser plugin -- they want a permanent link available to all users.)  They want to do this for both ISSN and ISBN because they manage ebooks through SFX as well.

I succeeded in modifying the MARC21slim2OPACDetail.xsl file to wrap the ISSN in the syntax to make a call to the SFX server.  I'm wondering if (a) people would find this useful as a general patch, and (b) how to set it up to be relatively generic.  I'm thinking of two sysprefs (one each for ISBN and ISSN) where the site could fill in the URL of the OpenURL plus the search syntax as a prefix.  For example: 


Then, if there is a value in the syspref, pass it into XSLT and make the ISSN/ISBN a link with that syntax.

I haven't worked with other OpenURL systems besides SFX.  Is this kind of syntax generic enough?  Do other systems require any kind of postfix (text after the ISSN/ISBN) as well as a prefix?

Ideas? Comments?

Comment 1 Jane Wagner 2010-07-30 12:23:30 UTC
I worked up a patch which I think will allow for any link resolver.  There are two system preferences: OPAClinkresolver (for whether or not to use it) and OPAClinkresolverURL (to enter the URL and parameters for the link resolver).  If the feature is turned on, and there is an ISSN in the MARC record, a "Check Full Text Availability" link will show in the upper right box on the details page, along with the Place Hold, Print, etc. links.  I designed the layout so that both the generic image and the wording can be changed by stylesheet and jquery settings.  This would allow a site to use, say, the SFX logo and a local wording like Check Our Databases instead.

Note: this could have been accomplished by adding an entry into the OPACSearchForTitleIn setup.  I chose to do it separately for two reasons -- to make it more prominent on the page (instead of hidden in the More Searches pulldown), and so that it would only display if the feature was turned on and there was an ISSN in the record.

This patch does not apply. Also, it renames a file, which seems strange. Here are the messages I got:

Comment 6 Jared Camins-Esakov 2012-02-10 15:05:30 UTC
I don't think this is a sufficiently general solution. A better option would be to add ISSN as a token for More searches, and use that in the site-appropriate manner for OpenURL resolvers.
