Aleph and Ebsco’s Full Text Finder – Process for Updating Your Web OPACs

As campuses move from LinkSource to Full Text Finder, it will be necessary to change the links in the Aleph OPAC for some campuses.  15 campuses currently display a link to LinkSource on the serials holdings screen – links that should be changed at some point to Full Text Finder.

When your campus is ready to switch the link from LinkSource to Full Text Finder – on either prod or dev – please submit a Footprints for this work.  Select the Service Task “Aleph Web OPAC v.20”. — https://service.sunyconnect.suny.edu/footprints/help.html

Natalie Sturr has developed the procedure for implementing Full Text Finder 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 LinkSource on the Aleph serials holdings screen are:
BRH, CAN, COR, FIT, MAR, MOR, NAS, OLD, ONE, ORN, PLA, PUR, SCH, ULS, WES

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

Thank you,

Laura K. Murray and Natalie Sturr
