APIs

There are two types of Primo APIs available for your use:

  • Deep Search
  • Web Services
    • X-Services: Basically like REST APIs; responses in XML
    • SOAP: Standard XML based protocol for accessing Web Services
    • REST: Will hold all previous APIs in the standard REST protocol (this will be done in the coming future)

Information about these APIs is available from Ex Libris:
https://developers.exlibrisgroup.com/primo/apis

Access to these APIs is restricted to CUNY IP addresses only. Please make sure OLS has your correct and up-to-date IP information:
