How to remove “Print Holdings” from my results list when the "Full Text" limiter is applied?

Results from your “Print Holdings” collection in Holdings Management may appear in your results list when the "Full Text" limiter applied, however you may only want these results to appear when the when the "Available in Library Collection" limiter is applied. This can be accomplished by setting up separate Full Text Finder CustomLinks for your “Print Holdings” and “Online Holdings” collections.

The steps below will remove “Print Holdings” from appearing on the results list when the "Full Text" limiter is applied. Items in the "Online Holdings" collection will remain labeled "Full Text" and are included in the results list when users check that option. Items in the “Print Holdings” collection will still have the Full Text Finder link and will not appear when a user limits to full text. Both Online and Print holdings will appear when the "Available in Library Collection" limiter is applied.
