Authentication

A unique API Key is required to utilize the 360 Link XML API service. This Key is issued to authorized institutions by Ex Libris who have signed and returned the appropriate Terms of Use (TOU) agreement:

  • Use the Terms of Use document if internal staff from your institution will be using the API.
  • Use the Terms of Use (third party) document if an agent (a party not affiliated with your institution) will be using the API on your behalf.

Please submit the signed TOU agreement using the Ex Libris Support Portal. Once a completed and signed TOU agreement has been received we will provide you with a fully executed copy, and an API account will be configured for you.
