How do I set up a link to my library catalogue?

If your library catalogue is web enabled, i.e. has a web based search interface, your organisation can configure Informit to show a Check Local Holdings button next to each record displayed (if the record has an ISSN or ISBN).

Clicking on this button opens a separate window and searches your library catalogue.

Note: if you are unsure about what these links should be, contact your own technical support facility and/or email our Customer Support Team at support.informit@rmit.edu.au.

  • Log in to Informit Admin.
  • Go to User preferences.
  • Set the Web holdings active field to Yes.
  • Modify the link text in the Web holdings link text field (if required).
  • Enter the URL of your web catalogue in the Web holdings base URL field.
  • Enter the additional command for an ISSN search in the Web holdings ISSN field (if required).
  • Enter the additional command for an ISBN search in the Web holdings ISBN field (if required).
  • Save changes.
