  • Knowledge base harvested to iCat every night; and A-Z list also updated every 24 hours
  • E-books are currently being developed; we can activate them in SFX and harvest them into iCat, but there is no provision yet to include in an A-Z listing, also the records are title/author only
  • Basic admin interface. What people see depends on their permission sets.
  • Edit button, view button. Services + portfolios. Copy function.
  • Point out authentication and general notes which display publicly. Other notes are for us.
  • Object portfolio = one title only
  • Transcript

    • 1. Everything You Always Wanted To Know About SFX … LRC Helpdesk Training June 2012
    • 2. What is ‘SFX’• Link resolver and knowledge base for e- journals and e-books, from ExLibris• Links into iCat through regular harvesting of basic metadata• Generates A-Z list of e-journals and SFX menu• Allows linking out from databases to full-text• Doesn’t stand for anything now but was originally ‘special effects’ and originated at Ghent University in the late 1990s
    • 3. What does this mean in practice?• One-stop list of e-journals (and eventually, e- books) from every provider, in one place• As this is the oldest link resolver on the market, it is very technical compared to competitors such as SerialsSolutions• Allows a range of linking (to full text, abstract, TOC) if we wished to set this up• From databases and iCat full-text articles can be accessed within two clicks
    • 4. Behind the scenes …
    • 5. Where most of the work happens
    • 6. First, what about that terminology?!• Source = where the search process begins• Target = database or provider• Object = journal or book• Object portfolio = journal or book within a target• Linking parameters = authentication• Institutes = different sites (not used)
    • 7. Sources include …• iCat• Databases with the ‘Find it!’ button• COPAC• Google Scholar• SFX Citation List and A-Z list of e-journals• Zetoc
    • 8. Targets include …• All the usual databases – but at the moment with standard system generated names so ‘Science Direct’ is ‘NESLI2 Elsevier Science Direct Freedom Collection’• Some miscellaneous groups such as ‘Free e- journals’ which are lists from different providers, brought together• Services such as Amazon (for book reviews)
    • 9. Target list – a tick means ‘active’
    • 10. Understanding what the buttons mean
    • 11. Investigating an active target
    • 12. Investigating an active target service - 1
    • 13. Investigating an active target service - 2
    • 14. Investigating active object portfolios
    • 15. Behind the scenes of object portfolios
    • 16. Terminology again!• Target Service Parser – system generated, otherwise we use BULK:BULK and link to journal homepage URL only• Parser – only used if a target service one does not exist• Parse Param – identifying code for the journal, usually taken from the URL• Threshold – dates the journal is available to us
    • 17. An example …• We would like to activate the journal “Test for SFX” in the database “ADISONLINE”• First, we need to search the knowledge base to see if this journal (object) already exists – we can search by title and/or ISSN
    • 18. Searching for an object
    • 19. If no results, we need to add the object
    • 20. Adding an object
    • 21. Title added with system generated identifier (no ISSN)
    • 22. Now to create a portfolio (linking the object to a target)
    • 23. Find your target …
    • 24. Add link through to the journal (parse param)
    • 25. Adding thresholds (dates)
    • 26. Finished! Now to check that it works
    • 27. Generated SFX menu
    • 28. Harvesting into A-Z list/iCat• Usually takes 24 hours after setting up a new object portfolio, or making any changes, for it to appear in the A-Z list or iCat• Titles can be searched in various ways and we have tried to add all previous titles where they are available to us• E-books are available in iCat only, by title and author
    • 29. The e-journals A-Z – labels are customizable if we wish
    • 30. E-journals A-Z, title search
    • 31. E-journals A-Z, the information button
    • 32. E-journals A-Z, category browse
    • 33. E-journals A-Z, locate search (publisher or provider)
