Publishing from Alma

The Alma publishing process enables integration between Alma and third-party systems, based on the bibliographic information stored in Alma.
There are several systems for which Alma includes a custom system-specific publishing profile. Integration with other system is done using the general publishing profile, which can be customized for each system’s requirements.
In general, publishing from Alma is run after the bibliographic and holdings data has been populated in Alma. Alma exports the full set of records the first time and then exports the changed records incrementally.
After Alma exports the records, the third party system can harvest the data and use it according to its needs.
