Enhance Alma to offer notes that are displayed for electronic resources to every user, campus member or non-campus member
We would like a way to display local holdings information on Primo for ebooks held by libraries from individual campuses.
We are 1 institution of Alma but have a number of libraries linked to Campuses across the institution.
Some of these campuses have their own local subscriptions to ebooks and we are unbale to display this information on Primo.
We have tried using the public note from the Notes field in the Electronic Portfolio Editor but this only displays when a patron from that Campus is logged in (we use OpenAthens to authenticate).
If a patron is outwith the campus logs in they just see a message ‘Sorry no full-text available’
This is not ideal from an end-user perspective as it’s misleading.
There is an added complication in that more than one campus may subscribe to the same ebook so we would need to add different notes in some instances, e.g. available to Campus 1 and Campus 2 only, etc.
We reported this to ExL and this is not possible at the moment so suggested we add an idea.
