Sirsi/iBistro Link Ideas

iBistro allows multiple ways to link directly to holdings and collections of holdings. This page is an attempt to document some of those direct link choices by offering examples.

In most cases, the user can determine the direct links by looking at what's linked into iBistro. For example:
http://ibistro.tln.lib.mi.us/uhtbin/cgisirsi/CpJenCFFAg/NORTHVILLE/287090074/121/PUBLISHFIC

The above provides a direct link to Publisher's Weekly Fiction listings. This link is ONLY usable when logged in. You can see two sections of the link have a long list of LETTERS (CpJenCFFAg) and NUMBERS (287090074) that will be different from session to session. These are SESSION COOKIES. You can create the direct links by using either X (upper or lower case, doesn't matter) or 0 (that's ZERO, not an "OH") in place of the session cookies. So the above listed link becomes:
http://ibistro.tln.lib.mi.us/uhtbin/cgisirsi/x/NORTHVILLE/x/57/121/PUBLISHFIC?user_id=NORTHVILLEWEB

However, you cannot pull links directly from iBistro and expect them to work, even if you replace the cookies. It appears there is a "code" used to designate a link as coming from outside the system. Note in the above example that 57 is added into the link. 57 will be in every single iBistro link you make. Basically add /57/ after the first 3 sections following /uhtbin/cgisirsi/x/x/x/57/. You must also plug in a "user_id" at the end. See the table above for the appropriate user_id for your library.

Want to use these for your library? Substitute anything that says NORTHVILLE with the name of your library. You can find a list of the correct Library names/codes within the Detailed info page on Book Lists listed below.

Direct Holding Links

A page can be found describing this in detail for TLN libraries using iBistro at:
http://www.northville.lib.mi.us/helpfiles/booklists/

You can find examples of Direct Holdings in Northville Reader's Advisory book lists available online at:
http://www.northville.lib.mi.us/advisory/

and via the Children's Reading Themes at:
http://www.northville.lib.mi.us/youth/themes/

You can use ISBN or DBCN to create direct item links. Find the DBCN or ISBN of a given item, and then use it as follows:

Item Link Example with ISBN
http://ibistro.tln.lib.mi.us/uhtbin/cgisirsi/x/x/x/57/5?user_id=NORTHVILLEWEB&library=NORTHVILLE&searchdata1=0439136369

Item Link Example with DBCN
http://ibistro.tln.lib.mi.us/uhtbin/cgisirsi/x/x/x/57/5?user_id=NORTHVILLEWEB&library=NORTHVILLE&searchdata1=AAO-4111

Direct Links to Features of the iBistro Catalog

Most of these links are short and easy to use. Include your library NAME (in most examples thsi is NORTHVILLE) and the user_id on the end (in most examples this is NORTHVILLEWEB). Some examples do NOT include a library name.

Following http://ibistro.tln.lib.mi.us/uhtbin/cgisirsi/ in some examples is "0/x/0". Anywhere you see this example, you can add your LIBRARY NAME (not the user_id) to limit the listings EXPLICITLY to your library holdings by replacing the "x". A few examples have NORTHVILLE, TLN or NOVI as examples.

Browse Subject and Kids Catalog have literally hundreds of different individual sections you can link to using the method of removing the session cookies and replacing them with x or 0... too many to list here.

Links to iBistro Best Seller Book Lists

(All demonstration links using NORTHVILLEWEB as user name... in theory, the inclusion of this ?user_id=NORTHVILLEWEB on the end of the URL plus the inclusion of NORTHVILLE in the 6th level of the URL *SHOULD* allow the library name to appear at top, but something needs to be fixed in the config by TLN to enable this)

All of these use the same basic link setup with the variation being called in the 8th level of the URL with different names for the Best Seller lists (like NYFICTION or PUBLISHFIC).

Recommended Reading Lists Links

These links are a bit more complicated. Variations take place at the 7th level of the URL and the list is called by the end of the URL (122/2006/REC_READ_LIST=/REC_LIST_TITLE=) Again, you can pull this information directly from iBistro itself, and remove the session cookies accordingly for your purposes. Again, the inclusion of NORTHVILLE at the 5th level of the URL should enable the Library name to appear at the top of this list, but it does not.

To create a Quick Search box for your library’s holdings on your web site:

<FORM NAME="login" METHOD=post ACTION="http://ibistro.tln.lib.mi.us/uhtbin/cgisirsi/x/x/x/57/5?">
<input type="hidden" name="user_id" value="TLNWEB">
<input type="hidden" name="library" value="TLN">
<input type="" name="searchdata1" value="">
</FORM>

NOTE: In the above HTML code, you must customize the lines for your library:
<input type="hidden" name="user_id" value="TLNWEB">
<input type="hidden" name="library" value="TLN">

where TLNWEB is your library’s webserver as used in all other links above and where TLN is your library’s name, minus WEB, as used in all other links above. For example, for Novi, the lines are:
<input type="hidden" name="user_id" value="NOVIWEB">
<input type="hidden" name="library" value="NOVI">
If you do not want to limit to only your library’s holdings and instead want to search all libraries’ holdings, you can remove that second line, <input type="hidden" name="library" value="TLN">.

Quick Search with Limit for your web site

<html>
<body>
<FORM NAME="login" METHOD=post
ACTION="http://ibistro.tln.lib.mi.us/uhtbin/cgisirsi/x/x/x/57/5?">

 <select name="srchfield1" id="srchfield1">
      <option value="GENERAL^SUBJECT^GENERAL^^words or phrase" selected="selected">words or phrase</option>

 </select>
<input type="" name="searchdata1" value="">
<INPUT type=submit name="SearchNow" value="Submit"><INPUT type=reset name="ResetSearch" value="Reset">
</FORM>
</body>
</html>
Almost the same as the Quick Search alone, but adding a section with attribute names. Make you you use this text EXACTLY as listed. Even a minor typo here renders all limits null.

A working example is below:

The Incredible Amazon/Barnes & Noble to iBistro Bookmarklet

Installing

MSIE 5.x or 6.x (where X = version #... any 5 or 6 version)
LEFT click on the link below and DRAG it over to the "LINKS" section in MSIE. It will prompt you, saying this may be "dangerous". Most assuredly it is NOT. Click yes.
Mozilla/Firefox
LEFT click and drag the link below up the the toolbar. Let go of left button and drop it there.

NDL Bookmarklet

Using the Bookmarklet

This tool is really designed for Librarians. The purpose is to allow Searches in Amazon or Barnes & Noble to be quickly duplicated on the TLN iBistro catalog.
First, search for something in Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Say, Ric Flair's "To Be The Man".
Next, Load the page with the actual book listing (showing price, etc.)
Then, drag the Bookmarklet down from where you place it by left clicking on the NDL Bookmarklet link and holding the left button down. Drag that down to the Amazon screen.
A POP UP screen will then load with the iBistro holding (assuming it has been cataloged).

How's that work?

Actually, pretty simple: the bookmarklet uses a regexp (Regular Expression) run via JavaScript to find the ISBN of the material on Amazon or Barnes & Noble. It then spawns a simple search for the ISBN on TLN's iBistro catalog. Pretty slick, eh?

I want more

Okay then. Here's what the actual javascript looks like for Northville Library:
javascript:var%20re=/([\/-]|is[bs]n=)(\d{7,9}[\dX])/i;if(re.test(location.href)==true){var%20isbn=RegExp.$2;void(win=window.open('http://ibistro.tln.lib.mi.us'+'/uhtbin/cgisirsi/x/x/x/57/5?user_id=NORTHVILLEWEB&library=NORTHVILLE&searchdata1='+isbn,'LibraryLookup','scrollbars=1,resizable=1,location=1,width=575,height=500'))}
Replace the sections inherent to Northville with your library. A list of such can be found at http://tech.tln.lib.mi.us/ibistrolinks/ You can change the window spawn size, or re-design this to go to a different library catalog.

Props

The Bookmarklet script is just an adaption of Andrew Mutch's script for TLN and the Web2 catalog.
