Re: AtoZ lists and password access Stokes, Judith 03 Feb 2006 19:41 UTC

If you have EbscoHost EJS "Enhanced," you have a customer code and
password to get into the admin site and in the admin site,
there's a "registration tracker." In the registration tracker, find the
record for New England Journal of Medicine, and type a note about giving
the password in the space for "End user access notes." That will display
on the EJS journal screen, and information you put in "Registration
notes" will NOT display to the public.

Good luck,

Subject: [SERIALST] AtoZ lists and password access

We subscribe to EBSCO's AtoZ, and EbscoHost EJS and we have come up with

a dilemma.  As an example, we access our online subscription to New

England Journal of Medicine with a password.  From our online catalog,

we redirect patrons to a secure web page which contains the password and

a link to the journal.  However, if a patron accesses this journal

through our AtoZ list, they get routed through EbscoHost EJS to the

publisher's site, but are denied access without a password.  There is no

way for them to know where this password resides.  I hope I've managed

to explain this clearly.  Does anyone have a solution to this?
