XML-based integration with Remote Storage Facility
When a request is placed in Alma on an item that belongs to a remote storage location, an automatic job exports the requested information to a defined FTP location. The remote storage facility system should retrieve the file and process it: the requested item should be taken from the remote storage location, and sent to the relevant pickup location in the library.
The item will arrive at the library and scan-in there, in order to proceed the request workflow in Alma.
