    Difference Between SFX and Fulltext Icons ?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: MetaLib
    • Product Version: 4

    What is the difference with the content found behind the SFX and Full Text (FT) icons?
    I know that there is a little more with SFX, but is there anything else that's different?

    The SFX icon links to the SFX services menu or, if direct linking is turned on, to the Full Text.

    The FullText icon is linked to the Journal Subscription index that MetaLib queries via the SFX API. The Full Text icon only appears when this query to the JSI yields the response FTEXT = Y. (Typically, you can see the FTEXT parameter, value either Y or N, in any search result: MetaLib Full View > View Original Format > Converted.)
