Making ILL Requests at Volume Level from a Consortial Primo to Aleph ILL Module Using Self-developed JSP Programs on Primo

I in the blog entry "Making ILL Requests from a Consortial Primo to Aleph ILL Module Using Self-developed JSP Programs on Primo" suggest a way to make ILL request to Aleph ILL Module via Primo; and the customization has a weakness - that only allows making request at bibliographical level and cannot entertain volume level (item) request. This entry describe an improvement of it to allow requests in volume level, the result graphically: 

 

ILL Volume Level Request

The source codes can be found here: https://github.com/HKSFILS/Primo-Enhancement

Description of the source codes:

1. tiles/ill.jsp: to replace the old "ill_form.jsp" as an ILL form invocation.

2. tiles/ill_form_multi.jsp: ILL form for volume level request

3. tiles/ill_form_single.jsp: ILL form for single level request.

 

The setup to use the function is described in the previous workout: "Making ILL Requests from a Consortial Primo to Aleph ILL Module Using Self-developed JSP Programs on Primo".
