    Question

    1-3. When using a Link Resolver that is not SFX (for example, EBSCO Linksource, Serial Solutions 360), where is our electronic institutional holdings file placed for Primo Central?
    4. When should it be updated?

    Answer

    1. Find site holding file current location via the Primo Central Wizard
    a) use site's Primo Activation Wizard URL > Institutional holdings file URL OR
    b) use the Back Office > Ongoing Configuration Wizards > Institution Wizard > Edit Institution page > My Profile Link > My Client Applications > Primo [#####] > Institutional holdings file URL

    2. Check the Institutional holdings file URL
    For Example: http://site_primo_address.com:1701/primo_library/libweb/uploaded_files/{INSTITUTION-CODE}/INSTITUTION-CODE_holdings.xml

    3. Test the XML file location by placing it in a browser address bar (although, if the file is huge, this can freeze the browser session)

    4. Thursday morning: If an updated file is placed on the Production server by Thursday morning, it should be harvested for over-the-weekend Primo Central updates.

    Additional Information

    * Sometimes both Sandbox and Production Primo installations point to the same Primo Central instance.
    * Institutional Holdings could be in 'customized' or 'uploaded_files' directories.
