    Add a Single Subscription (No Specific Target) in SFX and Primo

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

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Make articles from a new subscription discoverable via Primo and Primo Central (for example, The Wall Street Journal subscribed to directly from ProQuest).

    1. Collect the required details:
    - a. specific edition (prefer ISSN over journal title)
    - b. threshold (coverage limitations)
    2. In SFX, locate the most general package that applies. For example, in the above example, a good target is PROQUEST_NEWSSTAND_NATIONAL_NEWSPAPERS_NEW_PLATFORM which provides coverage back to 1984.
    3. In SFX, activate the Object, Service, and Target, adjusting the Object threshold, if necessary.
    4. In the SFX Target Service,
    - a. turn off AutoActive
    - b. turn on AutoUpdate
    - c. if relevant, turn on Use Proxy
    5. In Primo Central, activate a collection that provides searching for this title.
    - If it is not known which collection provides access, send the question to the Primo Central team via a Case.

    Additional Information

    * Updates to SFX holdings entered by Thursday morning are generally synced with Primo Central over the weekend.
    * There is not currently a Primo Central interface to search a specific journal and identify relevant Primo Central collections.
