Import LIBRIS ILL requests into Alma
Alma allows an on-going batch import of borrowing requests from an external ILL system into Alma. When these ILL requests are loaded the resource sharing workflow continues in Alma.
Prerequisites for the integration:
- The potential partners should be created in Alma for assigning the imported requests to the appropriate lender.
- A new integration profile ‘Resource Sharing Integration’ should be created. This profile serves as an integration profile between any external ILL system and Alma, which is used for ILL information retrieval via API, in particular LIBRIS ILL API.
Configuring the Resource Sharing Integration profile in Alma
In order to import the borrowing request from an external system into Alma an integration profile of type ‘Resource Sharing Integration’ must be configured in Alma.
