    TranslatableLinking Program (Target Parser)

    Refer to the following document (the SFX Target and Alma E-Collection Configuration Guide) that provides specific linking parameters which are required to enable full text linking.

    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).

    Service Filter Condition Rules for CCC Get It Now Electronic Collections

    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.

    Configuring Dynamic URLs for Electronic Collections and Portfolios

    Translatable
    To work with electronic resources, you must have the following roles:
    • Electronic Inventory Operator
    • Electronic Inventory Operator Extended (required for delete operations)
    • Repository Manager
    Instead of managing static links for local electronic collections and portfolios, you can create sophisticated dynamic URLs for local electronic collections and portfolios and embed OpenURL metadata information dynamically. In addition, you can use dynamic URLs to override linking provided by the community knowledge base.
    The Electronic Service Editor and Electronic Portfolio Editor pages enable you to define a list of conditions that are used to select a linking URL for the service or portfolio, respectively.
    Dynamic_URL_Linking_Information_Conditions_Example_NewUI_06_TC.png
    Dynamic URL Linking Information Conditions Example
    When using dynamic URLs, each condition must start with an IF statement that checks for the existence of ContextObject and OpenURL parameters. If all parameters exist for a condition starting at the top of the list, the specified URL for that condition is used for linking. Otherwise, the next condition will be checked, and so forth. To catch any case (use this to match if all other checks fail), use IF () <url>.
    For example:
    IF (rft.issn, rft.year, rft.volume)
    http://www.publisher.com/{rft.issn}/{rft.year}/{rft.volume}
    IF (rft.issn, rft.year)
    http://www.publisher.com/{rft.issn}/{rft.year}
    IF (rft.issn) http://www.publisher.com/{rft.issn}
    IF ()
    http://www.publisher.com
    If the first condition is met in the above example, the resulting dynamic URL may look something like the following:
    http://www.publisher.com/1364-0321/2010/2
    In addition to rft.year, you can also use rft.month, rft.day, and rft.date attributes.
    Test dynamic URL syntax enables you to verify the syntax of your conditions.
    For more information about configuring dynamic URLs for electronic collections, see the Dynamic URLs For Electronic Collections video (2:33 mins).

    See Commonly Used OpenURL Attributes for the URL Template for more information.

    URL Functions

    In addition, the dynamic URL may include any of the following functions to manipulate the values returned in the specified parameters:
    • SUBSTR (string, from, length) - Return a substring of the specified string, based on the starting position and length of the string. If {rft.date} contains 2010-08-01, and the first four characters from the beginning of the string are specified, as follows:
      http://www.publisher.com/{rft.issn}/SUBSTR({rft.date},0,4)
      Alma uses the following URL:
      http://www.publisher.com/1824-6321/2010
    • REPLACE (string, search, replace) - Replace text in the specified string, based on search and replacement text. If {rft.isbn} contains dashes (for example, 978-1-285-13563-2) and no replacement text is specified, as follows:
      IF (rtf.isbn)
      http://www.publisher.com/REPLACE({rft.isbn},-,"")
      Alma uses the following URL:
      http://www.publisher.com/9781285135632
    • URLENCODE (string) - Encode special characters in the specified string. If {rft.atitle} contains the title The Grapes of Wrath, and encoding is requested, as follows:
      http://www.publisher.com/URLENCODE({rft.atitle})
      Alma uses the following URL:
      http://www.publisher.com/The%20Grapes%20of%20Wrath
    Electronic collections are available (to be published to Primo) after they have been activated. The exception to this is database type electronic collections, which are available to be published as soon as they are defined by a URL and an associated unsuppressed bibliographic record.
    You can define portfolios as standalone entities or as part of an electronic collection. The procedure for adding electronic collections and their associated portfolios is provided in Adding a Local Electronic Collection. The procedure for adding a portfolio independent of adding an electronic collection is provided in Managing Local Portfolios.

    Resolver Proxies

    Translatable
    To configure a resolver proxy profile, you must have the following role:
    • General System Administrator
    To enable off-campus users to access full text services at different vendor sites, you must define a proxy server, which is used to authenticate these users.

    The Alma Link Resolver responds to an incoming OpenURL and changes it to an electronic link by automatically including additional proxy information in the resolved URL. Some institutions use a single proxy server, in which case one proxy profile should be defined. If an institution uses several proxy servers, a proxy profile should be defined for each proxy server. You must then define the relevant proxy for each electronic collection, service, or portfolio.

    When distributing access to electronic resources through the Network Zone to members, proxies must be managed in the Institution Zone rather than the Network Zone. The Institution Zone proxy will override any proxy defined in a Network Zone collection.

    See the following for additional proxy information:

    Proxy Relationships

    The following table presents the relationships between the proxy-enabled setting for electronic collections, services, and portfolios. Portfolios inherit the proxy-enabled setting from the service-level setting to which they are attached. As a result, set a portfolio-level proxy-enabled setting only when you want it to be different from the service-level setting (in which case, leave the Proxy selected field on the service level blank). The electronic collection proxy-enabled settings are not inherited by portfolios.
    Proxy Relationships
    Proxy Enabled for Electronic Collection Level Proxy Enabled for Service Level Proxy Enabled for Portfolio Level Proxy Enabled Setting Results
    N N N Redirected to resource
    N N Y Redirected to proxy login
    N Y N Redirected to proxy login
    Portfolio inherits service setting
    N Y Y
    The electronic collection does not inherit proxy settings from the service or portfolios. If a proxy profile is selected on the service level, portfolios inherit the proxy setting from the service level. To set the proxy for the portfolio level, leave the Proxy selected field of the service-level setting blank.
    Y N N Redirected to the resource
    The Electronic Collection proxy is not inherited by the service or portfolio level
    Y N Y Redirected to proxy login
    Y Y N Redirected to proxy login
    Portfolio inherits the service setting
    Y Y Y Redirected to proxy login
    • To apply a 'Group Settings' Proxy for Portfolios, the Proxy needs to be applied in the' Group Settings' tab of the Electronic Service.
    • To apply a 'Group Settings' Proxy for the Electronic Collection, the Proxy needs to be applied in the 'Group Settings' tab of the Electronic Collection Editor.

    Configuring a Proxy

    To configure an intergration profile of Resolver Proxy type:
    1. On the Integration Profile List page (Configuration Menu > General > External Systems > Integration Profiles), select Add Integration Profile. The first page of the integration profile wizard appears.

    2. Select Resolver Proxy for Integration Type.

    3. Enter a name (Code) for the profile you are defining and, optionally, enter a description.

    4. Select Default if you want the profile you are defining to be the default proxy definition profile. (If you previously defined another profile as the default profile, clear the Default selection in the other profile before selecting Default in this profile). If the proxy is set as the default, and Actions (see below) is set to Always, then this proxy is used for resolving any resource, even resources that do not have ProxyEnabled=Yes.

    5. Select Next. The second page of the wizard appears.

      Resolver_Proxy_Integration_Profile_2.png

      Resolver Proxy Integration Profile – Step 2 (Proxy Definitions)
    6. Select the type of proxy server that you want to configure for this profile.

      There is no option to enter multiple IP addresses. The "Proxy IP" field should hold the proxy server IP address and not some allowed IP range. In case the OpenUrl request will come from this IP address, the proxy will not be added to the target Url, and this is to avoid looping. 

      The following options are available:

      • Biblio-Pam – This server proxy uses the following URL structure:

        The <Biblio-PAM URL> portion of the structure is the vendor-provided URL from Biblio-PAM.

        The <shortened target URL> is the target URL without the http:// or https://.

        • https://<Biblio-PAM URL>/http/<shortened target URL>

        • https://<Biblio-PAM URL>/https/<shortened target URL>

      • EZProxy – This option uses the following URL structure where $@ is the placeholder for the target URL:
        • https://www.ezproxy.unibo.it/login?
        See EZProxy URL Database for more information.
      • HAN – This option uses the following URL structure:
        • http://<HAN server>/hanapi/?hash=<HASH>
        Enter the http://<HAN server> portion for the Proxy url parameter.
        The remainder of the URL structure is constructed by Alma and appended to the portion of the URL that you entered in the Proxy url parameter.
        For the HAN proxy server type, you need to enter a Salt parameter. The Salt parameter is a free text field that may contain any alpha-numeric value. The value that you enter must identically match the salt value in the HAN proxy server configuration in your HAN account. When you create the HAN salt value in your HAN account, copy it to the Salt parameter in Alma.
      • LIBProxy

      • OpenAthens - This option uses the following URL structure:

        "http://" + {base_url}+ "." + {PROXY_URL} + {URL_PARAMETERS};

        For example:

        Target_url = www.google.com/help=true&test=false

        Proxy_url = proxy.com

        Resulting URL: http://www.google.com.proxy.com/help=true&test=false

      • OpenAthens Redirector – This option uses the following URL structure:
        • https://<OpenAthens Redirector URL>?url=<encoded target URL>
        The <OpenAthens Redirector URL> portion of the structure is the vendor-provided URL from OpenAthens.
        Enter https://go.openathens.net/redirector/<your domain> for the Proxy url parameter.
        The ?url= portion of the URL is added by Alma.
        The <encoded target URL> is the target URL in its encoded form.
        Note that even though Redirector is not a proxy server, the Alma proxy server configuration can be used.
      • WAM
        Note that you should omit the 0- at the beginning of your proxy URL.
    7. Enter the proxy URL as provided by the vendor (including http:// or https://) and the proxy IP address.

    8. Select one of the following values for Use Proxy:

      • Always – The proxy is used for any resolving.

        If this proxy is selected as default, it is used for any resolving, even for resources (services, collections, or portfolios) with EnableProxy=No.

        If this proxy is not selected as default, it is used for resources where EnableProxy=Yes and this proxy is selected.

        This configuration overrides the configuration in the Network Zone.
      • Never – This proxy is never used for resolving, even if it is enabled and selected for a particular resource.

      • Selective – This proxy is used for resources where EnableProxy=Yes and this proxy is selected (this is equivalent to selecting Always for a non-default proxy).

        Even if this proxy is selected as the default, it must be added to the resource explicitly.

    9. Select Save. The profile is saved.

    Configuring General Electronic Services

    To configure general electronic services, you must have one of the following roles:

    • General System Administrator

    • Fulfillment Administrator

    This section applies only to Primo. For information on how to configure general electronic services in Primo VE, see Configuring General Electronic Services for Primo VE

    In addition to services found in your own collection (such as full text, requests, and so forth), Alma allows you to define general HTTP services (such as searches in ProQuest dissertations and Amazon.com, Ask a Librarian, and so forth) to present to patrons in Primo. To have these services appear in Leganto, see Enabling General Electronic Services in Leganto.

    AlmaP_GES_Example_newUI.png

    Electronic Service Example (Primo View It)

    In order to create a general electronic service, you must be familiar with the syntax of the service’s URL, which includes any parameters that are required to query or access specific information from the service. The service’s URL along with OpenURL context object attributes returned from Alma’s link resolver are used to define the URL template, which Alma uses to create the service link that appears in View It and/or Get It.

    In addition, you can configure the following display settings for general electronic services:

    You can also share your general electronic services in the Community Zone, and use general electronic services defined by other institutions. See Sharing General Electronic Services in the Community Zone

    To configure general electronic services:

    It is recommended to use ExLibris's Unpaywall service in View It and not an externally used customer Unpaywall GES. This is because the open access in ExLibris's Unpaywall service is 100% available. 

    1. Open the General Electronic Services Configuration page (Configuration Menu > Fulfillment > Discovery Interface Display Logic > General Electronic Services). In addition to the columns that are visible on the General Electronic Services list, the Item Level column may be added to the view in the view configuration.

      GES_NewUI.png

      General Electronic Services List
    2. Select Add Service. The Add Service dialog box opens.

      AlmaPrimo_AddService.png

      Add Service Dialog Box
    3. Enter the following service information:

      • Service Code – The internal code for the service.

      • Service Name – The internal name used for the service.

      • Service Description – The description of the service.

      • Public Name – The label for the link that displays in View It and/or Get It.

      • Public Note – The note or description of the service that displays below the link in View It and/or Get It.

      • Display Location – Specify the areas within a record's full display that you want to display the GES link. The following options are valid in Primo: None, Getit, Viewit, and Getit & Viewit.

        The display of general electronic services is based on the service's availability rules that are defined with the Service Availability Rules tab, which appears while editing a general electronic service. For more details, see step 5. See Configuring Display Logic Rules if you want to hide the general electronic service based on additional criteria (such as the existence of another type of service or the type of user).
      • URL Template – The URL where the patron is redirected when the external service link is selected. The external service link is comprised of the base URL of the service, and any parameters that are required to query or access specific information from the service. It is formatted according to the syntax of the URL of the service. For more information, see  URL Template.

      • Item Level - This option displays only when Display Location is set Getit. Select Yes to show the link next to each item that matches the input rules. Select No to show the link at the holding level.

        To prevent potential performance issues, Item-level General Electronic Services cannot be used for the If Exists portion of Display Logic Rules.

        For more information, see Item Level General Electronic Service.

    1. Select Add and Close. The new service appears on the General Electronic Service page with the following row actions: Remove and Edit.

    2. Edit the new row to configure additional service details.

      The Service Details page appears.

      AlmaPrimo_ServiceDetails_ProQuest.png

      Service Details Page (Service Details Tab)
    3. To display this service to signed-in users only, select No in the Enable without login field.

    4. To hide this service based on the availability of the physical resource in the institutional repository, select one of the following options for Disable Service:

      When a guest user or a user without a configured campus performs any of the campus-level disabling activities, Alma disables/hides the service based on a self-ownership check done at the institution level.

      • Never – The service is never disabled.

      • When resource is owned by the campus – The service is disabled when physical items for the resource are owned by the campus.

      • When resource is owned by the campus and available – The service is disabled when physical items for the resource are owned by the campus and are available (that is, they are not involved in a process).

      • When resource is owned by the institution – The service is disabled when there are physical items for the resource that are owned by the institution.

      • When resource is owned by the institution and available – The service is disabled when there are physical items for the resource that are owned by the institution, are in place, and are in an open location. Note that if a physical location is set to Unavailable (see Adding a Physical Location) and this option is selected, the service is enabled. You may want to use this option when items in a certain location (such as a reading room) cannot be requested. Setting this location to Unavailable will enable the display of the service.

    5. Select the Service Availability Rules tab.

      The Service Availability Rules tab displays the rules that the system uses to determine whether a service should be hidden from the user. Each service has a default rule that is applied when none of the other rules apply. The Default general electronic service rule hides the service by default (IsDisplay=False). You can edit the default rule and add rules as needed.

      GES_ServiceAvailabilityRules_NewUI.png

      Service Availability Rules Tab
    6. Add rules regarding the OpenURL context object attributes (which may be returned by Alma’s link resolver during the user’s search) to ensure that Alma has the necessary information to display the service.

      • The available attributes are standard OpenURL attributes. For more information, see Commonly Used OpenURL Attributes for the URL Template.

      • The following item level attributes may be used when item level services are configured:

        • material_type

        • item_policy - values are populated from the institution's Item Policy table. See Configuring Item Policies.

        • process_type

        • base_status - values are Item not in place and Item in place.

      • Adding parameters within a rule will cause the parameters to have an AND relationship with each other, meaning that all values must be true before the rule is considered true. For OR conditions, where only one of values must be true, parameters should be entered separately in a new rule.

      • If multiple rules evaluate to true, the output parameter will be applied based on the first rule that is true.

      1. To add a new rule, select Add Rule. The Edit Rule page opens.

        AddGES_Rule_NewUI.png

        Edit Rule Page
      2. In the Edit Rule section, enter the rule name (required) and description (optional).

      3. In the Input Parameters section, select Add Parameter. The Add Parameter dialog box opens.

        GES_AddParameter_NewUI.png

        Edit Rule Page
      4. Enter the following fields:

        • Name – The name of the attribute in the OpenURL context object. For more information about these attributes, see Commonly Used OpenURL Attributes for the URL Template.

        • Operator – The comparison operator to use with this context object attribute.

        • Value – An accepted value for this parameter. To match multiple values, create a separate rule for each value. Note that not all operators require a value.

      5. Select Add Parameter. The parameter is added to the input parameter list.

      6. In the Output Parameters section, set IsDisplay to true.

      7. Select Save. The Service Availability Rules page displays the new rule.

    7. Select Save. The General Electronic Services page displays the new service.

    In a collaborative network, you can create general electronic services in the Network Zone and then distribute them to member institutions. The member institutions have view permission to the distributed records but are not able to edit or delete them. When the Network Zone general electronic service has been distributed, the local list will show either the distributed records only or both the distributed records and the previous local general electronic service records, depending on the configuration in the customer parameter, network_ges_distribution_members_behavior.

    Item-Level General Electronic Service

    When the General Electronic Service is added as an item level service, the URL template may be configured to make use of the following Holdings and item level information:

    Holdings/Item Element Name of Placeholder
    Current Library (Code) library
    Current Location (Code) location
    Current Call Number call_number
    Barcode barcode
    Material Type (Code) material_type
    Current Item Policy (Code) item_policy
    MMS ID mms_id
    Process Type (Code) process_type
    Item description description

    In addition, it is possible to add fields from the Holdings record to the URL template. The placeholder syntax is HOL_{field}_{indicators}_{subfields}. The use of indicators is optional. For example:

    • HOL_506_ab - Alma will extract subfields a and subfield b from 506 field. Each subfield will be delimited from the next one with a space. The indicators are not taken into account.

    • HOL_506_12_df - Alma will extract subfields d and subfield f from 506 field only when indicators 1 and 2 exists. Each subfield will be delimited from the next one with a space.

    • HOL_506_1#_g - In this scenario, Alma will extract subfields g from 506 field only when the first indicator value is 1 with no dependency on the second indicator.

    A sample URL template may be : <baseURL>?LIB={library}&BARCODE={barcode}&FIELD1={HOL_506_ab}.

    Sharing General Electronic Services in the Community Zone 

    To share and copy shared General Electronic Services, you must have one of the following roles:

    • Fulfillment Administrator
    • General System Administrator

    Institutions spend many hours creating general electronic services. In order for these institutions to save time and effort, librarians can contribute their general electronic services to the Community Zone and copy and use the general electronic services that other institutions contributed to the Community Zone. Once the general electronic service has been copied to the institution, the institution can make changes to it in order to customize it for its needs. 

    When a general electronic service is contributed, all its related rules are contributed as well.

    Contributed general electronic service appear in the Community tab on the General Electronic Services page (Alma Configuration > Fulfillment > Discovery Interface Display Logic > General Electronic Services). Copied general electronic services appear in the Institution tab. 

    The general electronic services set by the network institution also appear in the Institution tab. To distribute the general electronic service to consortia members, the Distribute Fulfillment Network Configuration job is used (see Configuring Fulfillment Information in the Network Zone). This is since these general electronic services are managed by the network institution and therefore, cannot be edited or contributed by the member institution. 

    To contribute general electronic services to the Community Zone:
    1. From the row actions, select Contribute for a general electronic service on the Institution tab of the General Electronic Services page (Alma Configuration > Fulfillment > Discovery Interface Display Logic > General Electronic Services).

      General electronic services page.jpg

      A confirmation message appears.

      confirm message for sharing GES.jpg

    2. You can optionally change the Service Code and Service Name.
    3. It is recommended that you change the Description to include detailed information for institutions that will copy the GES. 
    4. You can optionally enter or change the name and email address for the Contact person.
    5. Select Confirm. The service appears in the Community tab and can be copied by any institution.

    In case the general electronic service has been already contributed by the institution to the CZ, you may also edit and re-contribute an edited general electronic service. The latest general electronic service overwrites the previous general electronic service. This action has no effect on local copies of the general electronic services used by other institutions. 

    To view contributed general electronic services and/or copy a contributed services:
    1. Open the Community tab on the General Electronic Services page (Alma Configuration > Fulfillment > Discovery Interface Display Logic > General Electronic Services).

      To view more information about the general electronic services, from the row actions, select View. The profile details appear.

    2. Select Copy in the row actions list of the general electronic service. The general electronic service is copied to your institution and the new general electronic service is opened for editing. The general electronic service is copied and Its status is Inactive by default.
    3. Edit the general electronic service details to match your requirements.
    4. When you are done, select Save.
    5. Select the Institution tab to view the general electronic service that you copied.
    To remove (unshare) a general electronic service you contributed from the Community Zone:
    • Select Delete in the row actions list of the general electronic service and select Confirm in the confirmation dialog box.

      The general electronic service is no longer available to other institutions. However, it is not deleted; you can continue using it in the Institution tab. Also, if another institution already copied this general electronic service, the deletion of your general electronic service has no effect on their local copy.

    Configuring the Order of General Electronic Services

    To configure the order of general electronic services, you must have one of the following roles:
    • General System Administrator
    • Fulfillment Administrator

    With the General Electronic Services Order page, you can configure the order in which general electronic services appear in Primo. Like other services, you can also assign services to appear in the first or last group in the list.

    You can only configure the order of general electronic services at the institution level. Select the required institution from the Configuring filter on the Fulfillment Configuration page.

    General electronic services page.jpg

    General Electronic Services Order Page

    This page does not have a Save button. Every selection made here is saved in Alma automatically. 

    To configure the display order of general electronic services:
    1. Open the General Electronic Services Order page (Configuration Menu > Fulfillment > Discovery Interface Display Logic > General Electronic Services Order). 

    2. Select Add to top or Add to last services to configure the order of services at the top and bottom of the list of results, respectively.

    3. In the Service type field, select General Electronic Service.

    4. In the Service name field, select Service.

    5. In the Service value field, select a service value.

    6. Depending on which list you are defining, select either Add to topAdd to last services. The service appears in the list that you are defining.

    7. For each list, select the arrows in the Move Up and Move Down columns to order the services.

    Message Customization 

    When there are no full text services available for the OpenURL request, the Electronic Services page displays a message. An administrator can customize the wording of the message. 

    This configuration is applicable to Alma-Primo environments and does not apply to Primo VE.

    To customize the wording for the 'no full text' message:

    1. Open the Discovery Interface Labels code table (Configuration Menu > Fulfillment > Discovery Interface Display Logic > Labels).
    2. Locate the row with c.uresolver.emptyList in the Code column.
    3. Select Customize. The Description column cell in that row opens for you to enter your customized message text.
    4. Enter the text you want to appear on the Electronic Services page when no full text is available.

      If you prefer that no message be displayed when no full text is available, leave this option blank.

    5. Select Save.

    Troubleshooting - Using the OpenURL Link Resolver Debugger Tool

    You can use a debugger tool to troubleshoot the context services that are offered by the OpenURL Link Resolver.
    The tool enables you to get the following information:
    • Determine the service calculation:
      • View the context object that was calculated based on the OpenURL parsing, augmentation, and related service.
      • Understand how the context services object was generated:
        • What were the potential services?
        • Which services were added based on the calculation of related services?
        • Which services were filtered out based on coverage or rules for general electronic services and display logic?
    • Determine the link resolution and how the OpenURL was generated:
      • Which target parser was used?
      • Was a proxy used?
      • Was it a static URL on the portfolio level?
      • Is there a direct link?
      • View the generated targetURL.
    • View the original OpenURL in the debugging content provided.
    • Enriching the data (context object) from CrossRef using the DOI is handled before matching.

    • For information about debugging a citation's uResolver (OpenURL) link, see the knowledge article Debugging Citation uResolver Links.

    To debug the Open URL:
    1. Search the repository for the electronic title or portfolio that you want to test access.

      For Primo VE environments, you can also use Primo VE to search for and display the electronic record's full display. Skip to step ii in the Primo VE section.

    2. Depending on your type of Primo environment, perform the following steps:

      • Alma-Primo:

        1. Depending on the type of results, select View It (electronic titles) or Test Access (electronic portfolios) for an item in the results list. You can also test access from the Portfolios List page and the Portfolios tab on the Electronic Service Editor page.

          Alma-Primo_ViewIT.png

        2. In the View It tab, select Display in a new window.
          Primo_DisplayInNewWindow.png

        3. Right-click the Electronic Services page and select the option to view the page source or frame source. The options are somewhat different for each browser.

          Select_View_Page_Source_Option_NewUI_02.png

          Select View Page Source Option
        4. Locate the DEBUG section at the top of the source view. Select and and copy the URL.

          HighlightCopyDebug_URL.png

        5. Open a new browser page or tab, paste the debug URL that you copied into the address bar, and press enter to view the XML debugger output.

      • Primo VE:
        To debug, you will enable the Display CTO button, which is hidden in regular use. Selecting this button displays the Context Object (CTO) that provides you with additional information about the result, to help you troubleshoot the context services that are offered by the OpenURL Link Resolver. 

        1. For a record in the results list, select Display in Discovery to open its full display.

          PVE_DisplayInDiscovery.png

        2. To enable the Display CTO button, add the following parameter to the end of the record's full display URL and then press enter: &displayCTO=true.

          For example:

          https://<Alma instance>/discovery/fulldisplay?docid=alma9926095600521&context=U&vid=PRIMO_OAP_INST:Alma&lang=en&displayCTO=true

          PVE_DisplayCTO_Button.png

        3. Select Display CTO to display the XML debugger output.

    3. Scroll through the XML output to analyze/debug your search result issues.

    The XML Output

    The XML output is comprised of two elements:

    • The <context object> element - this is the container for the metadata information about the OpenURL object. This element is a container of all the metadata information, such as the ISSN, the title, the publication date, etc. This is the metadata that Alma collected as part of the analysis of this OpenURL.
    • The <context services> element - contains information regarding service type, parsing, proxy, the target URL, and so forth. Alma calculated these services as relevant for this OpenURL. This element also contains the target_url.

    This is an example of XML Debugger Output:

    Analyzing / Debugging Search Result Issues

    The debugger provides information about the processing of the OpenURL, about the calculation of services, and also provides the target_url that was created in order to link to a title. 

    Looking at the <context services> element, we can see all services that Alma calculated as being relevant to this OpenURL. This can help in the following ways:

    • The target_url key displays the link that was generated by Alma. This can help you see if this is a problem with the URL that was created by Alma, or a problem with the vendor side. This link has information that can help you debug some of the issues you are facing. 
    • You can also better understand the Linker Service page. For example, if you expected a certain service to appear, but it is not appearing, check the following:
      • Coverage information. It may be that the expected service does not fit the coverage information. For example, you may be looking for vol. 1, issue 1, but the library only purchased access as of vol. 2. Thus, Alma filtered out this specific service.
      • ISBN/ISSN number. The link might be one that requires an ISBN. Your citation might be one that has an ISSN. Thus, the link to Alma is not appearing.
      • Display logic rules. Services might also be filtered out due to display logic rules that were defined.

    Note that in cases where records were filtered out from displaying in the results, the XML output contains key IDs for Filter (true or false) and Filter reason. For example, if Filter reason contains Date Filter and the OpenURL input specified a data parameter of year=2010, this may indicate that the record was filtered out because it was outside of the specified date range.

    Alma Link Resolver Special Services

    Open Access

    Users can enable a link resolver service for Unpaywall Open Access articles:
    • To enable the service, set the enable_open_access_services_from_unpaywall_api customer parameter to true (see enable_open_access_services_from_unpaywall_api in Configuring Other Settings (Fulfillment).
    • Where the open access information is placed can be configured in the Online Services Order configuration (Configuration Menu > Fulfillment > Discovery Interface Display Logic > Online Services Order). See the section Configuring the Order of Online Services for more information. The default placement of the open access information is at the end.
    • Open access rules can be configured to specify what appears or is hidden based on open access. See Configuring Display Logic Rules for more information.
    • Direct linking for open access can also be configured. See Configuring Direct Linking for more information.
    • Regarding search results for Unpaywall Open Access articles, note that Alma only checks for Unpaywall full-text access when opening the full view of a record from discovery (Primo VE). If the only available full-text source for an article or resource is through Unpaywall, it will not appear in search results (unless the Include results with no online full-text to request through Inter-Library Loan filter is applied).
    • Additionally, if there is no response for a PDF in the Unpaywall API Response, no Unpaywall Service will be displayed.
    • Unpaywall service limits calls based on the email sent in the API request. If the institutional email is not defined, create an institution-specific general invalid email and include it in the API.

    Link Resolver - Services for Related Records

    Configuring Related Records for Electronic Services

    This section applies only to Primo. For information on how to configure related records in Primo VE, see Configuring Related Record Services for Primo VE

    Related records indicate to the OpenURL link resolver that, when a user receives a certain record in the search results, another record should also be returned as related. Certain MARC fields, called linking entries (such as MARC fields 76X-78X), allow records to link to related bibliographic records and to differentiate their relationships to users. For a full list of MARC fields that are used as linking entries, see Modifying the Display Labels for Related Electronic Services. For additional information regarding physical resources, see Configuring Related Records for Physical Inventory.
    For electronic services, the configuration of related records is useful for the following reasons:
    • Articles sought by users may be available only in related versions of the journal.
    • Metadata in the OpenURL can be for one publication, but in fact, a related journal by another name is what the end user sought.
    • Vendors may list previous or newer versions in their holdings, causing inconsistencies in the Community Zone. For example, the journal Civil Engineering Systems is now named Civil Engineering and Environmental Systems.
    In the following example, View It displays the available services for the discovered record and the related record:
    ViewIt_Img1.png
    Related Records as Shown in View It
    A close relation indicates that the two records should be considered identically useful in the search results. If the record requested in the OpenURL has close relations (MARC 773 and 774) with another record, electronic services for the related record are included in View It, with no indication that these services are for the related record. To the user, it seems as if these services are for the record sent in the OpenURL. Since the relation type is very close, it can be considered equivalent; and as far as the user is concerned, no distinction needs to be made. Other types of relations are considered remote and are listed under the Services for Related Titles section in View It.

    To configure close relations to appear in the same section as the related titles in View It, see the Display closely related record services option in Enabling the Display of Related Records in Primo.

    Modifying the Display Labels for Related Electronic Services

    The Discovery Interface Labels code table (Configuration > Fulfillment > Discovery Interface Display Logic > Labels) enables you to customize and translate the following labels in View It:
    • Title – The label that displays above the list of related records in View It:
    • Relationship – The label that appears for each related entry in View It and Get It. To modify a label, see the relevant relationship in the table below.
    ViewIt_Img2.png
    Related Records as Shown in View It
    For the example above, you can customize the labels for the title and relationship by modifying the Description field for the following codes in the Discovery Interface Labels code table:
    Discovery Interface Labels Code Table
    Code Description
    c.uresolver.ServicesForRelatedTitles Services for Related Titles
    c.uresolver.viewit.related_type_list.PRECEDES Precedes

    The following table presents the correlation between the MARC fields defined in the bibliographic record and the out-of-the-box labels that appear for each type of relation in View It. For information on modifying labels, see Configuring Service Labels in the Discovery Interface.

    The labels and information that appear in the Primo's Details section is determined by the normalization rules that are defined in Primo.
