    360 Core: Adding a Public Note to All Databases from a Provider

    • Product: 360 Core Client Center

    How can we add a public note to all databases from a provider?

    You can display a public note next to every database from a particular provider on the E-Journal Portal's database list. You could use this to provide your patrons with information such as the need for a login and password, embargos, and other special instructions.
    In the image below, this kind of public note is shown next to the database FreeBooks4Doctors:
    E-Journal Portal - Database Notes
    There are different instructions for adding a public note to a single database, such as appears next to the database Free Medical Journals in the image above.
    To add a public note to all databases from a provider, go to the Provider Details page:
    1. From the Data Management page, click on the name of the provider to which you want to add a public all database note. (Alternatively, you can search for the provider using the e-Catalog search form at the top of the Client Center Home page and then click on the provider name in the results list.)
    2. On the Provider Details screen, click Edit on the upper-right side.
    3. Scroll down to the Public All Database Note field and enter your public note.
      NOTE: You can add HTML tags to public notes, including hyperlinks and image tags:

      Provider Details - Public All Database Note

    4. Check the Display box to make your note visible to users. Please keep in mind that this is not selected by default.
    5. Click Save to save your changes.
    After the next daily profile data refresh, the new note will appear in the E-Journal Portal's database list next to each database from that provider.
