How to link to BrowZine from Summon

Modified on Fri, 30 Sep, 2022 at 9:57 AM

A number of libraries who use Summon for searching their collection want to provide a direct link to BrowZine  as they would rather direct users to BrowZine rather than Serials Solutions Journal A-Z list.  This can be easily done using the Serials Solutions Client Center tools.

To do this log into your Client Center and then navigate to the section titled "Summon" and then "Administration Console". The first admin screen is titled "Settings" and this is the one with the option you want.

Scroll down this page to the section with the heading "Custom Link" and set it up as shown:

Here you will want to specify your library's BrowZine Library ID where it says "XXXX" above if you are unsure of your library's ID, simply contact us at for assistance. Then, in the text area, call it "Browse eJournals" or something similar to make it clear to your users what to expect when they click this link.

You could even add an image here and you might consider adding one from our press pack of images which you can download here.
