    Intota: Display License Terms of Use in 360 Products

    • Product: Intota

    How do we make a license's terms-of-use information, as configured in Intota, visible to patrons in the E-Journal Portal and 360 Link?

    You can provide your patrons with the terms-of-use information (which you configured for a license managed in Intota) in the E-Journal Portal and 360 Link results, which looks like this:
    E-Journal Portal Search Results
    E-Journal Portal: Results with Terms of Use
    360 Link Results
    360 Link Search Results with Terms of Use
    To make a license's terms-of-use visible to patrons, you must:
    1. Activate the license; and
    2. Do either of the following:
    Each of these steps is described below.
    If you want to change the wording of the link to the terms of use ("View Terms of Use ..." in the examples above), you can do so here for the E-Journal Portal (go to the Advanced list, in the Results Page section), and here for 360 Link (go to the Advanced list, in the Results Display section).
    To change the appearance of the link, you may use a CSS statement.
    <style>
    .SS_EJPTermsOfUse
    {font-size: [specify font size in pixels or percent; for example: 25px or 1.5%]; color: [use a hex code, for example: #AF0707] ;}
    }
    </style>
    In the 360 Link Administration Console &gt; Advanced Options section, in the Head HTML field, add this:
    .SS_ALTermsOfUse
    {font-size: [specify font size in pixels or percent; for example: 25px or 1.5%] ; color: [use a hex code, for example: #AF0707] ;}
    }
    </style>

    The Terms of Use display page accessible from the E-journal portal page inherits the page styles from the E-journal portal, and the Terms of Use display page accessible from the 360 Link page inherits the page styles from 360 Link.



    Activate the License

    1. On the Intota home page, click Tools on the menu bar and then select Licenses in the submenu:

      Client Center Home: Licenses


      You can also use the Quick Links section of your Intota home page to access License.
    2. On the Licenses page, click on the name of the appropriate license from the list.
    3. On the License Details page, if the Status is set for anything other than Active, you will need to change the status. Click Edit next to the Details section of the page:

      Intota licenses status active

    4. In the Status dropdown list, change it to Active.
    5. Click Save.
    Continue with either entering a terms value or entering a URL.

    Enter a Terms Value and Activate the Display In Settings

    1. On the License Details page, go to the License Terms section of the page:
    2. Click Edit to view all available fields and make changes:

      Licenses edit terms

    3. Use the ON / OFF selection to the right of a license term to have the information display to your E-Journal Portal and 360 Link users.
    4. Click Save.

    Enter a URL

    You can associate up to four URLs with a license:
    • Two vendor-license URLs: One can be made visible for patrons, and the other can be for your internal use (for instance, showing amendments, or terms and conditions)
    • Two local-license URLs: Again, one can be made visible for patrons, and the other can be for your internal use.
    You can put any kind of link here, including an actual web address (http://...), a local file (\\university\\Library\...), or anything else that helps your library manage licenses.
    1. On the License Details page, to enter or change one of the license URLs, click Edit next to the Details section of the page.
    2. Type a URL into one of the URL fields and use the ON/OFF selection to make a URL visible to your E-Journal Portal and 360 Link users:

      Intota licenses URLs

    3. Click Save.
