Active Library Serials - Instructions

If you would like to list active library serials on your department's web site, you can link directly to the Active Library Serials search script. This script accepts a number of parameters which can be used to customize the display of the serials. All of these parameters are optional. Parameters must be separated by an ampersand (&) and there can be no spaces anywhere in the URL. All parameters and options are case-sensitive. A default value, which is shown in parenthesis for each parameter, is used if a value is not provided.

The URL of the Active Library Serials search script is:
