Automated holdings updates for your Ebook Central owned and DDA-discoverable holdings are now available for Alma.
To enable this service:
- Contact Ebook Support through the ProQuest support center to ask for automated holdings for Alma to be enabled in Ebook Central. Please provide your Ebook Central site ID and let us know if you would like to send both owned and DDA titles, or owned titles only.
- Create an integration profile in Alma. For assistance with this step, please contact Ex Libris support via their support portal.
- The ProQuest Books division weekly updates occur on Wednesday. The Alma weekly integration job updates occur on Monday. The updates processed on Monday by Alma reflect the updates processed by the ProQuest Books division on the previous Wednesday. This comprises one cycle of updates. Note that with this schedule, some updates (depending on which day of the week that they occur) may take a little more than a week to appear in Alma.
If you are a member of a consortium on Ebook Central, we will send the consortium owned and DDA titles that are visible to your patrons on your Ebook Central site along with your locally-held titles.
