The EBSCO Knowledge Services are a suite of integrated solutions available via subscription that are designed to allow libraries and vendor partners to integrate key pieces of the library into existing processes and systems. The HoldingsIQ service allows EBSCO Knowledge Base data, holdings data and Holdings and Link Management (HLM) services to be integrated with other systems. HoldingsIQ can also be used to manage a library’s holdings via FOLIO, and many other open source library systems. If you are a commercial library automation partner, you can use HoldingsIQ to access your customer’s holdings and EBSCO Knowledge Base data.
By integrating HoldingsIQ, library automation systems partners can build applications that leverage the EBSCO Knowledge Base for vendors, packages, titles and titles contained within packages.
This section provides a brief overview of the HoldingsIQ core concepts. If you have interacted with a RESTful API before, many of the concepts described here will be familiar to you.
