OCLC WorldCat Discovery

2015-10-07

In order to provide access to resources that use https, your EZproxy server must be configured with an SSL certificate.

Title [My Institution] WorldCat Discovery (updated 20151007)
URL https://[my institution].on.worldcat.org
HJ [registry_id].on.worldcat.org
DJ worldcat.org
Find "https://" + location.hostname + (location.port != "" ? ":" + location.port : "")
Replace "https://^A[my institution].on.worldcat.org"
Find returnLocation = scheme + location.hostname + (location.port != "" ? ":" + location.port : "")
Replace returnLocation = "https://^A[my institution].on.worldcat.org"
Find sendLocation = scheme + location.hostname + (location.port != "" ? ":" + location.port : "")
Replace sendLocation = "https://^s[my institution].on.worldcat.org^"

For every [my institution] in the stanza above, insert the institution used with your WorldCat Discovery instance. For [registry_id] above, insert your institution's registry ID.

Also add the following hidden stanza to allow the non-customized pieces of the IDM to be proxied as well as static scripts/images that support WorldCat Local but do not need to be customized. The URL in this stanza is irrelevant; it is only the presence of "DJ worldcat.org" that matters.

Title -Hide WorldCat IDM and static content (updated 20151007)
