[OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Electronic books not opening

Thank you. I’m trying to contact my EzProxy guy now. Would anyone happen to have a correct url for an electronic book I could look at to see how it is built?

Hi Susan,
That message is coming from your ezproxy.  It does not have a configuration for the resource in the 856.  Either that's a new database that your
ezproxy does no know about or the URL in the 856 is incorrect.

You should check with your ezproxy administrator.

Hi Kathy,

We are using 3.something. It’s a new version for us. I hit Ctrl and Enter and here’s what I get:

Hi Susan,

What version of Evergreen are you on and is this problem in the web client?

There is a problem where the browser prevents you from opening links with http. You can open them by using CTRL-click to open the links in a new tab.

A fix was added to the most recent maintenance releases so that those links now automatically open in a new tab - https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1777954.

I hope this helps!

I think I’m noticing that electronic books with a 856 tag are not opening up. In fact, I think I’m noticing any 856 tag in any record is not opening. Has anyone else noticed this? Is there a solution?
