* Output file location in SFX4: /exlibris/sfx_ver/sfx4_1/sfxlcl41/export/institutional_holding.xml
For a library using this base URL for SFX: http://my.library.com/sfxadmin/sfxlcl3
The URL would be: http://my.library.com/sfxlcl4/cgi/public/get_file.cgi?file=institutional_holding.xml
If this URL does not work, see KCS Article "The SFX Institutional Holdings File Does Not Open in My Browser"
* A schedule should be created via the server_admin_util, so the file will be updated regularly.
The Primo Central system harvests these files weekly.
The process is lengthy and the harvest may run anytime between Thursday evening (Israel time!) and Sunday.
Best Practice: Schedule this export to run before 10am ET (USA) Thursday
