[LibX] Adding 360 Search to LibX

I think I figured out my problem. I had to go to the "Optional Settings" in the 360 Search section of the LibX edition builder and enter in a string of category IDs, which I found from the URL of a successful search done natively in 360 Search. I also added the EZ Proxy URL prefix to the base URL for 360 Search and it still works here on campus; I'll have to try it from home tonight.

Thanks for putting up with me answering my own question. Maybe this exchange will be useful to someone else in the future.

Thanks  so much for changing the labeling on the LibX edition builder. I've now set up 360 Search for the toolbar I'm building but am finding that isn't working properly when I test it.

Here is a screenshot of the settings I entered:

http://rookery9.aviary.com.s3.amazonaws.com/8694000/8694349_5c4e.png

When I run a test of 360 Search in the test page for our toolbar ("dickens" in the TITLE), I get an error message from 360 Search that suggests the syntax of the query is incorrect:

http://rookery9.aviary.com.s3.amazonaws.com/8694000/8694420_f4d2.png

This the URL that appears in that 360 Search page with the error:

http://zm3uh2fr3l.cs.serialssolutions.com/?SS_LibHash=ZM3UH2FR3L&queryValid=false&searchType=basic&searchBy=Database

For what it's worth, here is a URL for a successful search made in the native interface for 360 Search:

http://zm3uh2fr3l.cs.serialssolutions.com/results?SS_LibHash=ZM3UH2FR3L&dbIDList=&catGroupList=default&searchType=advanced&action=start&searchBy=Category&term0=dickens&field0=title&boolop1=and&term1=&field1=title&boolop2=and&term2=&field2=title&boolop3=and&term3=&field3=title&boolop4=And&term4=&field4=date&catID=all&catID=24444&catID=24445&catID=24446&catID=24447&catID=24448&catID=24449&catID=24450&catID=24451&catID=24452&catID=24453&catID=24454&catID=24455&catID=24456&catID=24457&catID=24459&catID=24460&catID=24461&catID=24463&catID=24464&catID=24465&catID=24466&catID=24467&catID=24468&catID=24469&catID=24470&catID=24471&catID=24472&catID=24473&catID=24474&catID=24475&catID=24476&catID=24477&catID=24478&catID=24479&catID=24480&catID=24481&catID=24482&catID=24483&catID=24485&catID=24486&catID=24487&catID=24488&catID=24489&catID=24490&catID=24491&catID=24492&catID=24493&catID=24494&catID=24495&catID=24496&catID=24497&catID=24498&catID=24499

Here's a screenshot of a successful title search for "dickens" in 360 Search's native interface:

http://rookery9.aviary.com.s3.amazonaws.com/8694000/8694468_27e7.png

In the "Catalogs and Databases" tab for the LibX edition builder, did I get the URL wrong for our 360 Search instance? Is there something else going on? Also, should I add our EZ Proxy prefix to that URL so that off campus users will get our authentication page first (you can't get to 360 Search off campus until you pass through EZ Proxy).

Thanks for any advice.

Stephen

There's name confusion. I thought Link/360 is their XML API to query their OpenURL resolver.
Central Search (now 360 Search) is their (old?) federated search.
LibX has supported Central Search as a dedicated catalog type for some time. I renamed it now in the edition builder to '360 Search'.
