How do I break out the date so the PhotoJournalMonth will show separately in an ILLiad incoming request from a patron?

Symptom
  • You want to have the PhotoJournal Month to show up in the request.  You want to know how to set up the OpenURL table so it will parse the date for the Month.
Applies to
  • ILLiad
Resolution

In the OpenURL table in the Customization Manager, most people have a PhotoJournalYear under the ILLIadFieldName column header.  They also set up the ILLiadValue to be:

DATE|yyyy

This feature breaks out the year.  This process helps sites that are processing Copyright and the year shows up correctly when you go to the Awaiting Copyright Processing.  If you want to have one for PhotoJournalMonth, this is what you do:

 

1.  Copy the record for PhotoJournalYear.

2.  Change the ILLiadFiledName to PhotoJournalMonth.

3.  Change the ILLiadValue to DATE|mm.

I have attached a screenshot.
