Chapter 135. Library Information Pages

The branch name displayed in the copy details section of the search results page, the record summary page, and the kids catalog record summary page will link to a library information page. This page is located at http://hostname/eg/opac/library/<SHORTNAME> and at http://hostname/eg/opac/library/<ID>.

Evergreen automatically generates this page based on information entered in AdminServer AdministrationOrganizational Units (actor.org_unit).

The library information page displays:

An Evergreen site can also display a link to the library’s web site on the information page.

To display a link:

  1. Go to AdminLocal AdministrationLibrary Settings Editor.
  2. Edit the Library Information URL setting for the branch.

Note

If you set the URL at the system level, that URL will be used as the link for the system and for all child branches that do not have its own URL set. . Enter the URL in the following format: http://example.com/about.html.

An Evergreen site may also opt to link directly from the copy details section of the catalog to the library web site, bypassing the automatically-generated library information page. To do so:

  1. Add the library’s URL to the Library Information URL setting as described above.
  2. Go to AdminLocal AdministrationLibrary Settings Editor.
  3. Set the Use external "library information URL" in copy table, if available setting to true.

The library information pages publish schema.org structured data, as do parts of the OPAC bibliographic record views, which can enable search engines and other systems to better understand your libraries and their resources.
