    Search Webhook for NewsBank

    Released: August 6, 2020


    We are pleased to announce a collaboration with NewsBank that enables the discovery of its news content, including Access World News, through Primo and Primo VE. By leveraging our recent Search Webhook enhancement, you can provide patrons the opportunity to find and access this valuable content.

    Once you start using the NewsBank search webhook, your patrons will be able to use a dedicated search scope to all NewsBank materials, while remaining within the Primo user interface.


    You will need to have a subscription to NewsBank news content to add the NewsBank search webhook. To enable this webhook, in Primo or Primo VE, you will need to request a token and service URL from NewsBank customer support and leverage the instructions found on the following pages in the Ex Libris Developer Network:

    If you are unfamiliar with search webhooks, which provide the ability to search external indexes within the discovery environment, we encourage you to review our introductory Primo Search Webhook video.

    We encourage you to provide us with feedback about this development and its use at your library.
