How to Link to BrowZine from Primo


A number of libraries who use Primo for searching their collection want to provide a direct link to BrowZine as they would rather direct users to BrowZine rather than Primo's Journal A-Z list. This can be easily done using Primo's administrator tools.


In the “View Configuration” area choose the view you would like to add the link to and click the “Edit” option to make changes. Click the “Links Menu” tab to display a list of the currently configured link buttons:

In the example above BrowZine is visible as the second link with the label “eJournals”.


To add a link like this to your BrowZine, click the “Add Link” option to the top right:

Your BrowZine library link is in the format of:


https://browzine.com/libraries/xxxx


Where the "xxxx" is your library ID.  If you do not know your library's BrowZine ID please contact support@thirdiron.com for assistance.


After adding your link and saving it you can modify the position and other details from the Links Menu screen.
