EBSCO database codes from SFX

OK: Now, you remember that you need to be watching the citation box in ILLiad Borrowing, because this will tell you which database the patron was in when they found the citation. But, let’s say you need to look for the citation yourself.

SFX is the link resolver that pulls the information into one place for the patron and then pushes it out to ILLiad. SFX will tell you that the database is EBSCOhost, but it inserts a cryptic code in to tell you which database in EBSCOhost they used. Sometimes you can figure it out. But if you can’t Debbie gave us a link to the “cheat sheet” of codes. http://support.ebscohost.com/knowledge_base/detail.php?topic=&id=1255&page=1
