The Resolver Access Options can be used to control the prioritization of access options where more than one resource is available for any item. For example, if an article is available through a journal activated in the TDNet Discover holdings for access via both the publisher and a vendor, the prioritization in the Access Options determines which is the priority source to be used for linking to the article. The prioritization is applied in the following cases:
- When ‘Go to best match link’ is selected in the resolver workflow. Where multiple sources are available, the resolver will redirect to the highest priority source in the Access Options.
- In the access options shown in the link resolver and record details pages. Where multiple sources are available, the ‘Read the full text’ button will use the highest priority source in the Access Options.
The Access Options can be prioritized using a Simple or Fine Grained categorization.
- Simple: Prioritise resources by the following broad categories:
- Open Access
- Pay Per View
- Current Subscription
- Library Catalog
- Fine Grained: Prioritise by the specific collections in the activated holdings and Publisher-direct titles.
To adjust the prioritization simply drag each entry to the desired position in the list.
In the fine-grained view, options are available to exclude selected collections. Excluding a collection suppresses full-text links from appearing for articles from journals in the selected collections.
The option to group vendors consolidates links from multiple collections into a single link, when a journal is provided from multiple collections from the same vendor.
