Sierra 5.5 - Direct 'View Public Display' to Discovery Layer of Choice
It was mentioned during a session at IUG last week that the Sierra option to 'View Public Display' in 'Search Holds' can now be directed to the record's view in Vega Discover. It was also suggested that this can somehow be configured to more than one display option. For libraries that use other discovery layers (e.g. Bibliocommons) it would be very useful if we could set this display to that specific interface.
The public display feature in the Sierra client can be configured to use various discovery systems as long as we can identify the correct URL to perform a search using the bibliographic record number. This capability is available in Sierra 5.5 and newer versions.
We recently set up a library to push the public display to the library's BiblioCore catalog and the library staff are happy with the results. If you use a different discovery system and would like to test this feature, please open a support ticket and provide us with the appropriate search syntax to perform a bibliographic record search into your library catalog.
