Automated holdings data updates for Paratext Reference Universe platform
Reference Universe by Paratext utilizes holdings data files consisting of ISBNs to present users with search results specific to their library's holdings.
According to Paratext, they have recently completed a pilot project where they access a library’s SFX resolver directly and retrieve information on new acquisitions without library personnel being involved at all, once the original protocols are established. This will be great for libraries using both Reference Universe and SFX.
They are interested in establishing this automated holdings data maintenance functionality with other OpenURL resolvers, such as Alma Link Resolver.
Please work with Paratext to establish and optimize automated ISBN holdings data updates between the Alma Link Resolver and Reference Universe.
