    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 information about configuring a linked data integration profile, see below.
    The linked data APIs apply to the production environment by default. To run them on the sandbox environments add ?env=sandbox.
