z39.50_targets

Z39.50 Targets

Z39.50 targets for the Evergreen staff client are stored in the file /openils/conf/opensrf.xml. Username/password prompts in the staff client can be suppressed (e.g. for LoC) by setting auth='f' on a corresponding entry in config.z3950_source in the database.

Some useful sources of target profile information are the IndexData directory and the Library of Congress Gateway. When using the IndexData directory, look through the “XML” code for an entry to check that their latest test connection attempts have succeeded. For the Library of Congress Gateway, use “View Page Source” on the individual search pages to see the necessary information.

The Evergreen configuration blocks use just two of the 6 attributes of the Z39.50 standard, the “use attribute” which is the “code” and the structure attribute, which is the “format.”

The following example entries were known to be working at the time they were added (December, 2008).
