    Question

    How to configure Primo direct links for Tipasa?

    Answer

    Tipasa supports direct links for ISBN, ISSN, and OCLC number. 

    The links follow this format (Primo New UI):

    ISBN: 

    https://{PRIMO DOMAIN}.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/primo-explore/search?tab={NAME OF TAB}&search_scope={SEARCH SCOPE VALUE}&vid={VIEW ID}&institution={INSTITUTION CODE}&mode=basic&query=isbn,contains,
    

    ISSN and EISSN: 

    https://{PRIMO DOMAIN}.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/primo-explore/search?tab={NAME OF TAB}&search_scope={SEARCH SCOPE VALUE}&vid={VIEW ID}&institution={INSTITUTION CODE}&mode=basic&query=issn,contains,
    

    OCLC number:

    Primo does not have a dedicated search field for OCLC number, but this can be configured as a local field. The URL should be modified to indicate the local search field (lsr) configured for OCLC number.

    https://{PRIMO DOMAIN}.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/primo-explore/search?tab={NAME OF TAB}&search_scope={SEARCH SCOPE VALUE}&vid={VIEW ID}&institution={INSTITUTION CODE}&mode=basic&query=lsr01,contains,
