    ILLiad: How can the rfr_id element be retained in UResolver?

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Alma

    Question

    How can rfr_id and sid fields sent via OpenURL from a source be retained in the OpenURL Alma sends to ILLiad?

    Answer

    This can be configured through the Electronic Services page
    1. Go to Fullfillment Configuration > General Electronic Services > ILLiad, and click Actions > Edit
    2. In the URL template, the following may appear:

    https:/ILLiadURL/OpenURL?rft.issn={rft.issn}&rft.volume={rft.volume}&rft.pages={rft.pages}&rft.month={rft.month}&rft.genre={rft.genre}&rft.auinit={rft.auinit}&rft.pub={rft.pub}&rft.issue={rft.issue}&rft.place={rft.place}&rft.title={rft.title}&rft.stitle={rft.stitle}&rft.btitle={rft.btitle}&rft.jtitle={rft.jtitle}&rft.aufirst={rft.aufirst}&linktype=openurl&rft.atitle={rft.atitle}&rft_val_fmt=info%3Aofi%2Ffmt%3Akev%3Amtx%3Aarticle&rft.auinit1={rft.auinit1}&rft.date={rft.year}&url_ver=Z39.88-2004&rft.aulast={rft.aulast}&rft.au={rft.au}&rft.spage={rft.spage}&rfr_id=primo.exlibrisgroup.com(Via+Alma)

    3. The final element in this template is the rfr_id element -- currently it is configured to replace any rfr_id data with primo.exlibrisgroup.com(Via+Alma)
    4. Replace this with {rfr_id} to retain source data

    Additional Information

    Configuring rfr_id elements in this way will also retain sid elements. Sid is an earlier version of rfr_id from OpenURL 0.1.
