    Question

    How to activate Naxos resources in Primo Central?

    Answer

    The Naxos resources require an institution specific parameter, to be fill in, at the Template Mapping Table of your Primo.

    To do this:

    1. Go to  Primo Back Office > Advanced > Mapping Tables > Templates
    2. Customize the table
    3. In the table to show only 'Naxos' codes. You should see 4 templates available for Naxos collection:
    • Naxos Musical Library
    • Naxos Jazz Library
    • Naxos Spoken Word
    • Naxos Video
    1. Naxos templates were added as part of Primo November release. If you haven’t installed Primo November release, and do not have Naxos templates in your Primo Mapping Tables, you will need to add the templates for the Naxos collections.The default values for the Template column for the four Naxos collections are as follows:

    Code

    Template

    naxos_music_libray

    http://INSTITUTIONID.naxosmusiclibrary.com/catalogue/item.asp?cid={{control/sourcerecordid}}
    

    naxos_jazz_libray

    http://INSTITUTIONID.naxosmusiclibrary.com/jazz/catalogue/item.asp?cid={{control/sourcerecordid}}
    

    naxos_spoken_word

    http://INSTITUTIONID.naxosspokenwordlibrary.com/catalogue/item.asp?cid={{control/sourcerecordid}}
    

    naxos_video

    http://INSTITUTIONID.naxosvideolibrary.com/title/{{control/sourcerecordid}}
    

     

    1. In the relevant template, replace INSTITUTIONID with your Naxos site-specific baseURL prefix in the Template code column.
      For example, if for the “University of Testing” the prefix is "unt". The template will change from:
    http://INSTITUTIONID.naxosmusiclibrary.com/catalogue/item.asp?cid={{control/sourcerecordid}}
    

    to

    http://unt.naxosmusiclibrary.com/catalogue/item.asp?cid={{control/sourcerecordid}}
    
    1. Save
    2. Deploy
    3. Test the linking for Naxos in your Primo Front End.
