WYLD TECHNOTE 008 : Enterprise catalog links and search forms for web pages

  (note - this technote assumes familiarity with HTML)

 

The following technote provides the syntax for creating links to your Enterprise catalog, a quick form for keyword searching, and examples of searches embedded in URLs.

 

Linking to your WYLDCAT Enterprise catalog

To link to your WYLDCAT catalog, you must put your profile information in the URL. An example link will look like this:

http://wyld.sdp.sirsi.net/client/niob/

Replace the portion after /client/ with your profile value. This is typically your library policy name e.g. park, natr, grey. If you are unsure of your library profile name in Enterprise, please contact the WYLD Office.

 

Keyword search form for your library catalog (Basic)

You will need the following:
  1. Your library's Enterprise profile name
  2. See the example below and replace the library value with your own library's profile name. The profile name appears after 'embedded.search' in the url - /tetn should be changed to /{your profile name}
  3. Your Library's SirsiDynix policy name (needed to limit search results to just your library's holdings)

<form method="get" id="searchForm" action="http://wyld.sdp.sirsi.net/client/embedded.search/tetn">
<input type="hidden" name="ln" value="en_US" />
<input id="q" title="Search For:" maxlength="256" name="q" value="" type="text" accesskey="s" />
<input value="Search" id="searchButton" class="button" title="Search" type="submit" />
<input type="hidden" name="lm" value="TETN" />
</form>
