Improving Alma/PrimoVE linking with CrossRef DOI and PubMed ID

Setting up CrossRef within your Alma instance will improve the link resolver accuracy of results in Primo VE. By default, the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) linking and PubMed ID linking are NOT turned on in Alma, and CrossRef turns that on.

CrossRef for Librarians

Configuring CrossRef in Alma

1. Determine your library's CrossRef membership login. The DOI linking requires a CrossRef membership login because you must add institution-specific credentials in Alma Configuration.  If your library does not yet have a CrossRef membership, request a free account with both username and password via the "Contact" link at bottom of this page

2.  In Alma, follow the steps in Setup of CrossRef (DOI). If your Alma does not already have an AUGMENTATION profile, follow these instructions.
