Session Abstract

With the latest Primo release Ex Libris offers a new API called "Primo Search Webhook". This API allows searching external resources within the Primo interface. In my talk I will show how to implement the API for searching the Solr based German ILL index. Topic being addressed are query transformation, facet mapping and generating proper PNX. The Python/Flask based implementation is available on Github.
