    Is there any way (or any plans) to return summary holding information from the API?

    It would be nice to have a concise summary of all the items within a holding, suitable for display to patrons.

    Currently I have two options for this.
    1) Make an API call per holding to fetch the holding marc record. Then parse this marc record to extract summary information
    2) Make multiple API calls to fetch all the items, and then somehow join all the in chronology/enumeration information from all the items together into a concise list.

    Neither one of these options is “easy” (or fast) and it would be very helpful to have summary holding information returned as part of the “Retrieve Holdings List” api call (/almaws/v1/bibs/{mms_id}/holdings). At the very least, it would be nice to return the holding marc data along with the holdings list api call. This would prevent a number of additional API calls.
