    Ebsco Targets without the Ebsco API

    • Product: SFX
    • Product Version: 4
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Multi-Tenant Direct, Dedicated-Direct, Local, TotalCare

    The Ebscohost article matcher is only relevant for journal articles.
    It does not support book searches or old versions of Ebsco targets, such as Electronic Journals Service.
    Therefore there are a number of Ebsco targets that do not have a Link Resolver Plugin. This is as expected and will not be changed.

    The Ebsco targets that do not have a Plugin work by using a different mechanism.
    These targets include, but are not limited to:

    • EBSCOHOST_ACADEMIC_COLLECTION_WORLDWIDE
    • EBSCOHOST_BOOK_COLLECTION_
    • EBSCOHOST_EBOOKS_
    • EBSCOHOST_AUDIOBOOK_
    • EBSCOHOST_NEWSPAPER_SOURCE_
    • EBSCOHOST_ELECTRONIC_JOURNALS_SERVICE
    • EBSCOHOST_E-JOURNALS

    If you encounter any specific issue with the linking to Ebsco, please open a case.
