    Display Condition Rules

    Translatable

    The Alma Link Resolver (and Primo View It) supports rules that determine the conditions in which an electronic collection is presented to an end user. Display condition rules are defined in the Community Zone knowledge base and include, for example, a requirement that the incoming OpenURL includes article-level metadata elements. Condition rules are available for newspaper electronic collections and electronic collections like CCC Get It Now.

    After you activate or edit the electronic collection, you can view the display condition information and rules. Note that display condition rules cannot be edited or locally created. To view this information, select the Linking tab on the Electronic Service Editor page; and next to Availability rules, select the Service display condition rules link (for newspaper electronic collections) or the Service filter condition rules link (for the CCC Get It Now electronic collection).

    By default, there is OR logic applied between the rules identified in the Rule Name column. This means that when any of the rules in these examples are met, the newspaper electronic collection or the CCC Get It Now electronic collection appear when using the Alma Link Resolver or Primo View It. If none of the rules are met the newspaper electronic collection or the CCC Get It Now electronic collection does not appear in Alma Link Resolver or Primo View It.

    To view the details of each rule, select the rule number link in the Rule Name column. See below for examples of these rules.
