    Linked Data is a set of best practices for publishing and connecting structured data on the Web. Alma implements a RESTful API that exposes linked data in JSON-LD format. For detailed information regarding the implementation of this capability, see in the Ex Libris Developer Network and the procedure below for configuring a linked data integration profile.
    This API works only on production environments and not on sandbox environments.

    1. On the Integration Profile List page (), select Add Integration Profile. Page 1 of the External System Wizard appears.

    3. Enter a unique name for the new integration type.
    4. Select Linked Data for Integration Type.
    5. Select Next. Page 2 of the wizard appears.
