FirstSearch administrators may now use the FirstSearch administrative module to activate a link that lets users order full-text documents from Infotrieve, a full-text document supplier.

When this purchase option is enabled, links appear in detailed records for citations for which the library does not make full text available through FirstSearch.

To activate this option, click the Linking tab in the FirstSearch administrative module, then click the Outbound Linking link.  Click the checkbox for Infotrieve to enable the link.  The default in the administrative module for linking to Infotrieve is OFF.

When a user clicks on a link labeled Order Article from Infotrieve, the user accesses the Infotrieve site from within FirstSearch. After creating a profile, the user may log on to Infotrieve to purchase the article with a personal credit card, and return to FirstSearch by clicking the Return button.
