    Configuring Search

    Translatable
    You can configure the options available when searching and the available resources to search.

    Configuring What Search Indexes Are Available

    To configure what search indexes appear in the simple/advanced search, you must have one of the following roles:
    • Catalog Administrator
    • General System Administrator
    You can configure which indexes are available to select for a simple or advanced (see Searching in AlmaSearching in the Repository). You can configure whether an index is available for a simple search, advanced search, or both, as well as the order that the indexes appear in the drop-down list.
    Local Index Configured
    To customize the labels (display text) of the search indexes for local fields, see Configuring Search Index Labels.
    Each locally customized MARC tag is indexed as a separate searchable field and all of its subfields are indexed and searchable when it is selected as a search option.
    You configure what search indexes appear on the Search Indexes mapping table (Resource Management > Resource Configuration > Configuration Menu > Resources > Search Configuration > Search Indexes). For more information about mapping tables, see Mapping TablesMapping Tables.
    Search Indexes Mapping Table Page
    To have Alma display/hide a search index in the simple search, enter true/false in the Simple Search column.
    To have Alma display/hide a search index in the advanced search, enter true/false in the Adv. Search column.
    For Index Order, Alma uses the numerical order of the codes when applying the search indexes that are enabled and marked as true. The lower the number in the Index Order column, the higher the search index priority.
    There is no option to reorder the search indexes in the drop-down list; instead, users can search for specific indexes in the drop-down list by entering part or all of the index label.
    The following table maps the index codes in the Search Indexes mapping table to the index labels in Alma:

    The following table maps the Object Type column in the Search Indexes mapping table to the search index types in Alma:
    Object Type to Search Index Types Mapping

    Search Indexes Example

    If an index, such as accession number, is enabled, it appears as an option when performing an advanced search.
    Accession Number Index Code Enabled
    Accession Number as a Search Option
    If an index is disabled, it does not appear as an option when performing an advanced search.
    In addition, when the Accession Number is disabled, it is not searched when performing a simple search.

    Configuring Search Index Labels

    To configure search index labels, you must have one of the following roles:
    • Catalog Administrator
    • General System Administrator
    You can edit the display names of the index labels of local fields used in simple and advanced searches and the order in which they appear.
    You configure index labels from the Customize Search Labels code table (Resource Management > Resource Configuration > Configuration Menu > Resources > Search Configuration > Customize Indexes Labels). For more information on code tables, see Code TablesCode Tables.
    Customize Search Labels Code Table Page (Search Index Labels)
    You can edit the index label details on this page. Reordering the items on this page has no effect; users can search for specific indexes in the drop-down list by entering part or all of the index label. You can also reorder how the indexes appear in the search drop-down list.
    Where your customized label appears (simple search, advanced search, or both) is determined by your configuration settings in Search Indexes; see Configuring What Search Indexes Are Available.

    Configuring Index Label Examples

    If the local field 900904 is named Additional InformationLocal 904 Gift Field, the Additional InformationLocal 904 Gift Field appears when performing a search.
    Local Field 900904Additional InformationLocal 904 Gift Field
    Advanced Search – Additional InformationLocal 904 Gift Field

    Configuring External Search Resources

    You can add external resources you want to search and their characteristics (normalization process, merge method, and credentials, as needed). You configure external resources on the Search External Resource Setup page (Resource Management > Resource Configuration > Configuration Menu > Resources > Search Configuration > External Search Resources). For information on external search, see Searching External Resources.
    Search External Resource Setup Page
    To add an external resources to be searched:
    1. On the Search External Resource Setup page, click Add External Resource.
    2. Under Find Resources, eEnter one or more search criteria to be used in locating a resource.
      • Name – Enter the name or part of the name of the resource.
        For example, enter KERIS in the Name parameter to locate the following resources:
        • KERIS (Korea Education and Research Information Service) – MARC 21 record format
        • KERIS (KORMARC) – KORMARC record format
      • Name search type – Select the way in which you want the search word or string to be matched against the resource names: Contains, Exact, or Starts with.
      • Resource type – Select a type of resource to locate — for example, an e-journal or e-book.
      • Publisher – Enter the name of a specific publisher from which you want to locate a resource.
      For a list of possible external resources, see External Search Resources.
    3. Click Find Resources to display the resources (from this list) that meet your criteria.
      A list of resources that meet the criteria opens on a new page. If the search returns no results, edit your criteria and try again.
      Search External Resource Setup Results - KERIS Example
    4. Locate the resource that you want to make available to your institution and select Select resourceSelect Resource from the row actions list.
      It is possible to have multiple connections to the same resource if the credentials to the resource are different for each connection.
      For cases like KERIS, if you want to import KERIS records that are stored in both the KORMARC and the MARC 21 record format, you need to repeat these configuration steps for both formats.
    5. Under Institution Details, modify, enter, or select the following:
      • Resource name – Modify the resource name to the name by which the institution refers to the resource.
      • Normalization process – Select the appropriate normalization rules file to be used from a list of previously defined files. Normalization processes can be added from the Resource Management Configuration page, in the General section. For more information, see Working with Normalization Processes.
      • Merge method – Select from one of the following merge methods predefined by Ex Libris:
        • Replace 245 and 035 OCLC if exist – Replaces all MARC fields in the Alma record with fields from the external records, except for fields 001, 245, and 035 (whose “a” subfields contain OCoLC or where the first indicator is 9 and the second indicator is #). Any 001, 245, or 035 fields in the Alma record are left in place, and any 245 or 035 fields in the external record are added to them.
        • Overlay all fields but local – Replaces 035 fields in the Alma record with those from the external record unless the first indicator is 9 and the second indicator is #. In addition, replaces all other MARC fields in the Alma record with fields from the external records, except for fields 001 and 9XX.
        • Keep only old value – Keeps all MARC field values in the Alma records.
        • Conditional subject headings – Replaces all MARC fields in the Alma record with fields from the external records, except for fields 001, 035, 9XX, 65X, and 7XX. Any 001, 035, 9XX, 65X, or 7XX fields in the Alma record are left in place, and any 6xX or 7XX fields in the external record are added to them.
        Alternatively, if you defined merge rules in the MD Editor (see Working with Merge Rules for the way in which these rules work), you can select these rules from the Merge method drop-down list. Note that the descriptions that were entered for the rules are displayed as the method names.
      • Credentials – The <username>/<password> (using this syntax, with no spaces) to be used for the external resource.
    6. Click Save. The resource is added to the list of available external resources.

    Configuring External Search Profiles

    To configure external search profiles, you must have one of the following roles:
    • Catalog Administrator
    • General System Administrator
    After you configure external search resources, you create a search profile that defines the order in which the external resources are searched and the search conditions. The search profiles appear in the Search cataloging profile drop-down list (see below) when searching external resources. The search profile can be configured to identify multiple external resources to be searched and define the order in which these external resources are searched. For information on external search, see Searching External Resources.
    To create a search profile for an external resources:
    1. On the External Search Profile List page (Resource Management > Resource Configuration > Configuration Menu > Resources > Search Configuration > External Search Profile), click Add External Search Profile. The first page of the External Search Profile Details wizard appears.
    2. Enter a name and description (required) for the search profile you are defining and click Next. The second page of the wizard appears.
    3. Under Internal Resources Pool, select Community Catalog and click Add to Selection if you want Alma to search internally (using the MetaLib search engine) before performing a search of external resources.
    4. Under External Resources Pool, select the external resource you want to add to the profile and click Add to Selection.
    5. Use the Move Up and Move Down arrows to set the search order for the resources. To delete a selected resource, select DeleteRemove from the row actions list.
    6. Click Save. The profile is added to the list of external search profiles. It can now be selected from the Search cataloging profile drop-down list (Resource Management > Cataloging > Search External Resources).

    Customizing the Repository Search

    To configure the repository search, you must have the following role:
    • Catalog Administrator
    You can customize the repository search to determine how search results appear for a Repository Search.

    Customizing the Default Selected Results Tab

    You can define the default search tab (Network, Institution, or Community) for staff searches. The default applies to searches from the Advanced Search page or the persistent search box. The selected tab is retained when you perform a search from the Repository Search results page. You can configure the default tab for authority searches.
    Due to a redesign of the search utility, configuration for searches other than authority searches is not available in the new UI. This feature will be replaced with a new, more flexible, feature in an upcoming release.
    To customize the selected tab for different search results:
    On the Repository Search configuration page (Resource Management > Resource Configuration > Configuration Menu > Resources > Search Configuration > Repository Search), select the default tab (Institution, Community, or Network) in the Default Search Tab section, and click Save.
    repository_search_ux.png
    Repository Search Page
    The Network option is available only for institutions within a collaborative network that have a Network Zone.

    Customizing the Thumbnail Display

    Alma attempts to display a thumbnail image for each title. If the title has a digital file, a thumbnail of that file appears. If the title has only physical items, Alma attempts to acquire a thumbnail image of the cover using the title’s ISSN or ISBN. If no thumbnail is available, a generic image of the material type (book, video, music, and so forth) appears.
    You can configure whether you want Alma to display thumbnails in the repository search results for digital resources only, or for all types of resources.
    To configure the thumbnail display:
    1. Open the Repository Search Configuration page (Resource Management > Resource Configuration > Configuration Menu > Resources > Search Configuration > Repository Search).
    2. Select one of the following options:
      • Show for all objects – Thumbnails appear for all types of resources.
      • Show digital only – Thumbnails appear only for digital resources.
    3. Click Save.

    Configuring Additional Staff Search Fields

    New for December!
    From the Additional Fields for Search Results mapping table, you can customize five additional 9XX fields for staff search. For each additional field that you customize, you can specify the label that is to appear for that field in the search results.
