When you activate a newspaper electronic collection (with no portfolios) from the Community Zone (with a full text or selected full text service type), Alma automatically creates/copies threshold information and display rules (see Display Rules with Activation) to the Institution Zone along with the newspaper electronic collection. This enables Alma to process an OpenURL request to present results through the Alma Link Resolver or Primo View It when certain conditions are met. This applies to newspaper electronic collections identified with a full-text or selected full-text service type.
