ILLiad HathiTrust DSP Addon

This is a Decision Support Pipeline Addon and is installed in the Customization Manager. For more information on the Decision Support Pipeline, see Decision Support Pipeline Overview.

Name

ILLiad HathiTrust DSP Addon

Version

1.1.1

Author

Atlas Systems, Inc.

Description

Searches HathiTrust for borrowing requests through the use of the HathiTrust BibAPI. If available on the request form, the addon will search by the OCLC number (preferred); otherwise, it will check by the ISBN/ISSN. The addon checks HathiTrust for item availability and delivers links if available. In addition, this addon integrates with the DSP to provide fulfillment data.



Be sure to enable this addon for the desired pipelines.

Additionally, in order to make use of the ETAS feature, you will need the following:

  1. A list of your HathiTrust holdings, in CSV or TSV format. HathiTrust has already distributed these lists to participating institutions.

  2. The Atlas HathiTrust OCN Parser available here: http://files.atlas-sys.com/productdownloads/ILLiad/Addons/Utilities/Atlas-HathiTrust-OCN-Parser.zip

Follow the instructions included in that file to process your HathiTrust holdings for inclusion in the DSP addon.
