EBSCO A-Z Default Citation Finder

In the final days before rolling out EBSCO Discovery Service in conjunction with EBSCO A-Z, I noticed that the citation finder embedded within A-Z wasn’t working correctly. Stranger still, the native search within Linksource worked better even when the same fields were filled out. Turns out that the default code for the Article Title field provided by EBSCO was incorrect. The field name should read “name=rft.atitle” not “name=rft.article”
