    Configuring Delivery for the Services Page

    Translatable

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

    When an end user selects a delivery tab (View It or Get It), Primo sends an OpenURL request to Alma to display the requested delivery information. In order to construct the OpenURL request for each tab, Primo uses the GetIt! Link mapping tables to map the Remote Search Resource delivery category and the available services status to either the almaviewit_services or almagetit_services template, as shown in the table below (which contains the out-of-the-box settings).
    The following are the available service statuses:
    • viewit_FT – View It services and full text are available.
    • viewit_NFT – View It services are available, but there is no full text.
    • getit – Get It services are available.
    • viewit_getit_FT – View It services, Get It services, and full text are available.
    • viewit_getit_NFT – View It and Get It services are available, but there is no full text.
    The View It and Get It services can be integrated with any third-party discovery system that is configured to use a SAML-based identity provider for both Alma and the discovery interface authentication. For detailed information, see https://developers.exlibrisgroup.com/alma/integrations/discovery.
