Streamline processes and share information by integrating your library management system with other aspects of your organization. The application programming interface (API) allows your webmaster to retrieve data and present it in a website or third-party application or to use the repository within a federated search tool. Using this facility, you can create a single sign-on (SSO), automatically reflecting changes in a user’s record.
