How to integrate BrowZine within OCLC WorldCat Discovery

A number of libraries who utilize OCLC WorldCat Discovery for searching their collection want to provide a direct link to BrowZine from within the WorldCat Discovery interface.  This can be easily done using the OCLC Admin Tools.

The goal of this tutorial is to allow you to modify the
Main Menu area which from the public view appears in the top of every page of the EDS interface and will look something like this:



To get started:  

1) Login to the OCLC Service Configuration site.
2) Select "MyWorldCat.org" as shown:



3) This will expand to show a sub-menu and select "User Interface Options".  Scroll to the bottom of this list to the section called "Custom Links".

4) Create a custom link of your choosing and name it here choosing the type of "Other" and replace the URL with your specific BrowZine Library URL (rather than the example showing library "999999" here):



That's it!  Your new direct link to your BrowZine Library should be ready!
