How do I edit OpenURL so the month will show up in an ILLiad request?

Symptom
  • When you get requests that use OpenURL, you want the month field separated out.
Applies to
  • ILLiad.
Resolution

Here are the steps you need to take to get the month of a Journal to be separated out on the form.

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 here are the steps you need to take:

  1. Copy the record for PhotoJournalYear and change the ILLiadFiledName to PhotoJournalMonth.
  2. Then change the ILLiad Value to DATE|mm
  3. Save the change.

I have attached a screenshot.
