Role Parameter

Syntax

The syntax for the role parameter is:

s.role=<string>

A query string may contain only one s.role parameter. There are two possible values for this parameter, either authenticated or none. The default value of this parameter, if unspecified, is none.


Function

The role parameter controls whether the search should be done as an authenticated user or an unauthenticated user. This is used to display content from A&I indexes that can only be displayed to authenticated users. Please respect this control and only use the authenticated for authenticated users only.

Example - Using the holdings only parameter

This query string turns on holdings only mode:

  s.q=nursing&s.role=authenticated
