Aleph and EDS Linksource – Process for Updating Your Web OPACs

Good morning everyone,

As campuses move from 360Link to LinkSource, it will be necessary to change the links in the Aleph OPAC for some campuses.  23 campuses currently display a link to 360Link on the serials holdings screen – links that should be changed to LinkSource.

When your campus is ready to switch the link from 360Link to LinkSource – on either prod or dev – please submit a Footprints for this work.  Select the Service Task “Aleph Web OPAC v.20” and specify the following:
* whether dev or prod is to be updated
* your Ezproxy (or other authentication) base URL

Natalie Sturr has developed the procedure for implementing LinkSource in your web OPACs and will be the lead on these Footprints issues.

You will be asked to test this from both on and off-campus.

Campuses that currently use the 360Link on the Aleph serials holdings screen are:
AUA, BRH, BRO, CAN, CER, CLI, COR, ERI, FIT, HVC, MAR, MOR, NAS, OLD, ONE, OSW,
PLA, POT, PUR, SCH, TCC, ULS, WES

Let us know via Footprints if you have any questions about this process.

Thank you and happy holidays,

Laura K. Murray and Natalie Sturr
