    Configuring the OpenURL Link Action


    If you are working with Primo VE, see Primo VE for more details.

    Alma users can use the Link action in the Actions drop-down list in the Primo search results and the e-Shelf to create an OpenURL link for a record returned in the Alma Services page. This URL can then be copied and used to re-access the Alma Services Page. 
    This action opens the Link dialog box, which displays OpenURL to the record. The user can select the URL and then copy and paste it to wherever it is needed.
