    Hi Sir/Mdm,

    I have a couple of questions regards to how Alma is integrated to most library system.
    1) If the library already has an Alma software, how does it actually integrate to external devices;
    a) If there’s Return Kiosks, since it’s stated that via SIP2 protocol, is the procedures like installing Stunnel on the Kiosks PC and then install Alma cert so it would communicate with each other
    b) If there’s Card Reader, do we do perform the same steps as 1a)
    c) If there’s a Face Recognition Application, do we use Alma API to integrate ? or use SIP2?

    Hope to get your reply soonest.

    Hi Jawn,
    Alma can integrate with other systems in many ways. All the relevant documentation is here: https://developers.exlibrisgroup.com/alma/integrations/
    Regarding a Return Kiosk, once the Kiosk has identified the user (using Card reader / Face Recognition etc.) it will contact Alma using the SIP2 protocol by sending the user’s ID. Alma will then search for the user in it’s database according to the identifier received.
    I hope this helps,
