    Unicorn

    Primo links to Unicorn using URLs that are built from templates that are customized in Primo.
    The base URL is the Unicorn server IP address and port number of the Unicorn server.
    http://<server IP>:<port>
    The base URL should be added for every Primo institution that uses Unicorn. Use the Primo Home > Ongoing Configuration Wizards > Institution Wizard page in the Primo Back Office to add the base URL information to the institution.
    Typically the following links are used:

    Link to Holdings and Back Link

    Vanderbilt has developed a script that is based on the Unicorn standard link-to syntax. This script can be used for the Link to Holdings and the Back Link. It links to the Unicorn full record and holdings display. Refer to Ex Libris support for details. The script is used by the following templates:
    For Back Link:
    unicorn_backlink-{{ils_base}}/cgi-bin/pcnum/{{control/sourcerecordid}}
    For Link to Holdings:
    unicorn_holdings-{{ils_base}}/cgi-bin/pcnum/{{control/sourcerecordid}}

    Link to My Library Card

    The following template will provide a link to the Unicorn patron details:
    {{ils_base}}/uhtbin/cgisirsi/0/0/0/57/49/1
    The name of the template is my_library_card.
    • Unless the single sign-on capability has been implemented, users are required to sign in before the page is displayed.
    • The Primo Front End displays My Library Card only if the template has been correctly defined and enabled and the Enable My Library Card check box has been selected on the Views Wizard > Edit View Attributes page.
