    360 Core: E-Journal Portal: Journals Quick-Search Boxes

    • Product: E-Journal Portal

    How do I create custom search boxes so patrons can quickly search for journals in our E-Journal Portal?

    August 3, 2016 Update: Formatting changes only; no changes to content.

    Quick search boxes allow your patrons quick access to the E-Journal Portal's resources from various web pages other than the primary E-Journal Portal itself. The below information applies to both the legacy E-Journal Portal as well as the enhanced E-Journal Portal 2.0.

    The quick-search boxes allow more access points for patrons and more flexibility for librarians.
    For quick-search boxes that search your e-book holdings, see this documentation.
    For quick-search boxes that search your journal holdings, read on.
    As an example, take a look at this screenshot from an institution that uses quick-search boxes:
    E-Journal Portal Quick Search Box
    You can create quick-search boxes that search for journals by subject or by title.
    Insert the following HTML code into the web page where you want the search box to appear. You need to replace CLIENTID with your Serials Solutions Client ID, which can be found with these instructions.

    Title Quick-Search Box
    Place the code below in the portion of your web page where you would like the title search box to appear:
    <div align="left" class="SS_TitleSearchForm">
    <form method="get" action="http://CLIENTID.search.serialssolutions.com/" name="SS_EJPSearchForm">
    <input type="hidden" name="tab" value="JOURNALS" />
    <input value="1.0" name="V" type="hidden" />
    <input value="100" name="N" type="hidden" />
    <input type="hidden" name="L" value="CLIENTID" />
    <select name="S">
    <option value="A_T_B" selected="selected">Title begins with</option>
    <option value="A_T_M">Title equals</option>
    <option value="T_W_A">Title contains all words</option>
    <option value="I_M">ISSN equals</option>
    </select>
    <input name="C" />
    <input value="Search" type="Submit" />
    <input onclick="javascript document.getElementById('SS_CFocusTag').value=''" value="Clear" type="button" />
    </form>
    </div>
    If you want to customize the size of the Title Quick-Search Box, you will need to add the following HTML code into the <head> section of your web page:
    <style type="text/css">
    #SS_TitleSearchForm {
    width: 100px;
    }
    </style>
    You can then adjust the width number as needed.

    Subject Quick-Search Box

    Place the appropriate code below in the portion of your web page where you would like the subject search box to appear.
