ExLibris has completed work that will allow Alma requests to look up & create ILLiad user records

Hello ILLiad Community,

We have some exciting news regarding an update with the Alma integration. ExLibris announced an upcoming release in July of 2021 that will allow user records to be pushed into ILLiad from Alma. This helps resolve any issues where a site's Alma username is different than the ILLiad username.

If you are using Alma to push borrower requests into ILLiad, you can now configure the resource sharing partner record in Alma to:

  • Use the ILLiad API to perform an ExternalUserID lookup and match the user record based on a user identifier or preferred email
  • Create a user in ILLiad if there is not currently a pre-loaded user record
  • Push patron information into ILLiad in real-time
