    WebV: Linkfinder is unable to incorporate genre into OpenURL

    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 9


    Adding in extra code doesn't break the feature, but the URL produced doesn't include genre

    Defect Status

    VYG-4766 / VYG-521 is resolved in Voyager 9.0.0.

    Replication Steps

    1. Enable OpenURL in by setting openUrl.cfg.LOCAL.openUrlDisplay=Y (change N to Y).
    2. For any field you wish to use with OpenURL, find a line corresponding to the one below and uncomment it:

    #aulast=100/a/0//, /0/

    1. Modify the subsequent 7 lines so that the URL will properly build a link based on any information used in the MARC record.

    Note: There's no code available to incorporate 'genre' into the URL built.
