Populating an ILL from with the Serial Solutions Link
Resolver API

by Daniel
Talsky



Problem:



The most reliable way to extract this information
from the query string and place it into your
ILL

form is
by using a server
-
side scripting language like
ASP/VBScript,
PHP
, Perl,
JSP
, or
ColdFusion

(
SerialsSolutions
, 2008).



Solutions listed above require programming
knowledge, server side configuration, and/or extra
software

Then What?


Client
-
side scripting (such as JavaScript) + HTML Form
