SFX Button overrides in Serial Records

  • To use URLs in record instead of SFX-supplied URL/menu:
    • 856 40  $1 blockSFX  [that's a number one]
  • To force serial record to display more than one button:
    • in last URL (856 or 956 but not getURL)
    • 856 40  $1 multibutton  [that's a number one]
    • label each URL with $z
  • For journals with 856 and 956 MARCit URLs, SFX takes 856 as first one and doesn't show menu
    • Suppress the 856 by changing to 856 49
