Hi Folks,

We have received notice from one of the journals we subscribe to that they are going to only be providing digital format in the future.  For copyright reasons I don't think we can just download this file then link to it using the 856u field as that would make it downloadable by anyone.  I looked through the manual but didn't find anything to address this.  I believe the ideal situation is for the document to be viewable at a workstation inside the library, but not through the public OPAC.

Is there a way to handle this?

We are on an older version (3.16) but I am quite prepared to update to the latest release as needed.
