    Searching the National Library of Medicine catalog via external search resources

    • Product: Alma


    Searching external resources using NLM LocatorPlus (z39 gateway - OPAC) returns an error: "An error has occurred, please try again later and contact the system administrator."

    How can the connection be restored?


    Searching NLM's catalog via Z39.50 now uses the Alma platform. Updated connection information is included in a new External Search Resource: NLM (Alma)

    Please configure the NLM (Alma) search resource to continue searching the NLM catalog.

    Additional Information

    Find more information in the Online Help about configuring External Search Resources.
