If not, an error message is returned.
Input Parameters

1. LIBRARY – X (5).
2. BOR_ID – X (20).
3. VERIFICATION – X (20).

  • Bor_Id / Identification/ ID: Type the Patron ID for which you want to receive full information.
  • Verification: Enter the password of the patron’s ID.

Output XML Format

The output XML includes all the information for the patron ID you enter.

http://ram7:8881/X?op=bor-info&bor_id=dep&verification=dep&library=GEN01

If successful, the example above generates XML output containing all the relevant information.
