Why does the Check for Full Text button only show up some of the time in Quick Search?

Currently, the Check for Full Text button shows up for records that have an ISBN OR an ISSN, but that do NOT originate from JMU Library Catalog or have full text from any of the databases available in Quick Search. All the records from JMU Library Catalog either have a print copy, or, if there is an online version, have a URL in the record to the e-version, so the Check for Full Text button would be an unnecessary – and possibly confusing - extra step in finding full text for the item. If you find examples where there is no button and a button would have been helpful please let us know. Send an email to
