EBSCO Full Text Finder (Automatic Sync and Manual Upload)

Modified on Thu, 06 Oct 2022 at 10:27 AM

Automatic Sync (for subscribing libraries)

Third Iron and EBSCO work together to automatically sync holdings for our mutual library customers.  If you use EBSCO A-Z or Full Text Finder and would like auto-holdings please contact us at support@thirdiron.com and we would be happy to coordinate with EBSCO to set this up for you.  Note that it takes about a week on average to receive your first file.


Below is information for manually doing this same process in case that is desired for your particular circumstance.


Manual Upload

Subscriptions are setup by using actual library holdings.  Third Iron recommends updating these holdings on a quarterly basis or whenever you have a known significant addition/loss of content to your library to help keep your holdings accurate.  Updating your holdings typically takes less than five minutes.


Current A-Z System Procedures (If this does not look familiar, please email our support team at support@thirdiron.com)

  1. In the EBSCO admin, select the "Holdings Management" tab

  2. Select the "Download Holdings" sub-tab (NOT the "Download Holdings Integration Changes" sub-tab as we require a complete export)

  3. Choose the following settings:

    • Type: Standard
    • Format: Tab Delimited
    • Resources: Managed and Custom
    • Resource Types (select this radio button and then choose: Journal, Newsletter, Report, Proceedings and Newspaper)

These include the following options:

Type: Standard

Format: Tab Delimited

Resources: Managed and Custom

Resource Types: Journal, Newsletter, Report, Proceedings and Newspaper.


Below this screen is an option to name the file, and then download it.

Once you have this file downloaded onto your computer, please ZIP the file and upload it using the BrowZine holdings uploader here:

We will notify you when your holdings have been loaded for your library.
