This web service returns a Bib record in an XML format.
To include physical inventory information use "expand=p_avail": AVA field is added per holding record as following: $$a - Institution code, $$b - Library code, $$c - Location display name, $$h - Campus, $$d - Call number, $$e - Availability (such as available, unavailable, or check_holdings), $$j - Location code, $$k - Call number type, $$f - total items, $$g - non available items, $$h - Calculated summary information, $$p - priority, $$0 - Bib record ID, $$8 - Holdings ID, $$t - Holdings Information, $$q - library name. Note: When using the API against a NZ Institution AVA fields will be retrieved for each member which has holdings.
To include digital inventory information use: "expand=d_avail": AVD field is added per Representations, as following: $$a - Institution code, $$b - Representations ID, $$c - REPRESENTATION/REMOTE_REPRESENTATION, $$d - Repository Name, $$e - Label, $$f - Public Note, $$h - Full Text Link, $$r - IED.
To include electronic inventory information use: "expand=e_avail": AVE field is added per portfolio, as following: $$l - library code, $$m - Collection name, $$n - Public note, $$u - link to the bibliographic record's services page, $$s - coverage statement (as displayed in Primo's ViewIt mashup), $$t - Interface name. $$8 - portfolio pid, $$c - collection identifier for the electronic resource, $$e - activation status. $$i - Available for institution, $$d - Available for library, $$b - Available for campus. Note: $$u will be created based on a Customer Parameter in the "Customer Parameters" mapping table (module: general): publishing_base_url. Note: When using the API against a NZ Institution AVE fields will also be retrieved for each member which has portfolios, including $$a with the Institution code and $$0 with the mms-id.
Note: To retrieve multiple records using a single API call, the Get-Bibs API can be used with the mms_id parameter. Note: The expand parameter is not supported for Dublin Core records. Note: The bibliographic record retrieved from Alma is enriched with additional identifiers. The MMS ID of the Network Zone and the Alma Community Zone ID are added to the record in additional 035 marc fields. The Community Zone ID is added with the prefix (EXLCZ) while the Network Zone ID is added with the prefix (EXLNZ-network_code). The local MMS ID is in the 001 marc field. These additional shared IDs can be used for better identification of a common record. The local MMS ID should be used when there is a need to call an API in the institution for the record.
Use view=brief to retrieve without the MARCXML. Use view=local_fields to retrieve only local fields for an IZ record linked to an NZ record.
This parameter allows for expanding the bibliographic record with additional information: p_avail - Expand physical inventory information. e_avail - Expand electronic inventory information. d_avail - Expand digital inventory information. requests - Expand total number of title requests. To use more than one, use a comma separator.
