Re: managing online access to periodicals subscribed to in print (Kaolin Fire) Martha Coleman 31 Oct 2008 19:28 UTC

Hello,
I would be interested in the portal information.  We have a pretty low tech solution for titles requiring username and password.  We wanted some way to allow access 24/7 so we created a page on our campus website that must be logged into...the url begins https rather than http.  The 856 in the marc record provides 2 links...one to the secure username/password page then a link to the web site to login.  Here is a sample record:
