    360 Core: E-Journal Portal Administration Console -- 2.0 Activation and Configuration

    • Product: E-Journal Portal

    Where do I turn on E-Journal Portal 2.0, the enhanced version of the legacy E-Journal Portal / A to Z List?

    This page is part of a larger set of documentation about using the Administration Console to configure your E-Journal Portal service.

    The EJP 2.0 Activation and Configuration page in the administration console is where you turn on E-Journal Portal 2.0 and configure optional features.

    Access the page by clicking on the E-Journal Portal 2.0 tab in the 360 Core Administration Console:
    Ejournal portal 2.0 activation page

    When you are ready to start configuring your options, click Edit in the upper-right corner of the page. After you make your changes, click Save, or click Cancel to discard your changes.

    Changes you make to the E-Journal Portal will not be visible to patrons until the daily profile data refresh has completed; to see how your changes will look without having to wait, click Preview.

    Activation and Configuration

    This section of the admin page is where you turn on E-Journal Portal 2.0 by selecting the Activate EJP 2.0 checkbox below. If you are not yet ready to have E-Journal Portal 2.0 visible to your users, make sure you have reviewed the Previewing Changes information above to make sure your timing will not coincide with the start of the Daily Profile Data Refresh.

    E-book Settings and Default Search Options

    Select the Enable e-book searching checkbox to include E-books in addition to E-journals. The checkbox should automatically be selected if you have been using the legacy E-Journal Portal and your E-books have been included in the legacy portal.

    Ebook settings

    The default setting is to have both journals and ebooks included in search results, and provide the user with options to limit results via the Journals Only and Books Only radio buttons:

    Journal and book filter

    To make Journals Only the default setting, select the Journals Only option in the admin console. To make Books Only the default setting, select the E-books Only radio button. With all default search options, the user is always presented with all 3 radio buttons and can select All, Journals Only or Books Only at anytime.
