    MetaLib Support for OpenURL 1.0

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: MetaLib
    • Product Version: 3

    Description:
    Does MetaLib support OpenURL 1.0? If yes, what do I need to do to implement it?

    Resolution:
    MetaLib does support OpenURL 1.0 from v3.13 and service pack 156. You must be also running the March 2006 revision of SFX for it to work properly.

    To implement after installing the service pack, you need to do two things:

    1. Copy 3 new HTML template files from the ./ins00/www_v_eng directory to all instances and language directories (INS01, INS02, etc., and www_v_eng, www_v_fre, etc., as applicable):
    openurl-metalib-doc
    openurl-metalib-doc-book
    openurl-metalib-doc-journal

    2. Edit the tab_institute table (found in ./m3_1/vir00/tab) and include a 'Y' at the end of line 4, which defines your SFX base URL, so the section reads:
    METALIB 1
    Y
    IRD_SELECTIVE EZPROXY http://10.1.2.233:2048/login?
    http://demo.exlibrisgroup.com:9003/demo Y
    METALIB INS00

    After making this change, you must issue the start_w command to restart the MetaLib Web servers.
