Answer

For institutions that have access to SIRS Discoverer, here is the HTML code to add a SIRS Discoverer search box to your library site.

  • Find your GALILEO institution code on the bottom of the “Contact Us” form: Institution: #### (name-consortia)
  • Plug the 4-character code into the following URL where you see ####
