    360 Link: Building Links Using the XML API

    • Product: 360 Link

    Now that my library has 360 Link XML API, how can I find more information about building my own custom links?

    This document is intended only for libraries that have requested the 360 Link XML API, to provide your library with examples of the URL syntax used for building your own 360 Link XML API Custom Links. Please note that since these link syntaxes could change at any time; we cannot guarantee that any of them will work for your library. (This document presumes you've already read the 360 Link XML API FAQ.)
    This document presents five types of Custom Link targets; click the type to go straight to that information:
    If you need any further assistance, please use the Support Portal option near the top of this page to send us your question.

    Please keep in mind that the below syntaxes are not guaranteed to work. In most cases they should work once you enter your library-specific information where appropriate. However, the example links to run ISSN and title searches on your Voyager OPAC are likely to have different syntaxes for your library. The best way to determine the correct syntax is to run a title or ISSN search within your OPAC, copy the URL that displays in your browser's address bar, remove any session ID information from the URL, and substitute the actual title or ISSN for the OpenURL metatag for that data (i.e. <?title?> or <?issn?>).
    ISSN search (must include a hyphen when linking to Voyager!):<?issnh?>&BOOL1=all+of+these&FLD1=ISSN+%28ISSN%29&GRP1=AND+with+next+set&SAB2=&BOOL2=as+a+phrase&FLD2=Keyword+Anywhere+%28GKEY%29&GRP2=AND+with+next+set&SAB3=&BOOL3=any+of+these&FLD3=Keyword+Anywhere+%28GKEY%29&PID=J9Sbcjao0-5YysLC7C4X2HZapih&SEQ=&CNT=10&HIST=1
