Openness can mean different things to different libraries. When working with open systems, we ask questions like: which technologies and standards are being used, what types of projects are supported, and do I have to build whole this thing myself? At Ex Libris, we develop open systems such as Alma, Primo, and Summon that support open standards and REST APIs in addition to out-of-the-box, best practice workflows and integrations. In this session, we will see how the University of Wisconsin at Madison built their own catalog interface entirely from the Alma-to-Primo published data and the Alma APIs, allowing them to experiment with extensions to the catalog based on the Alma Linked Data integrations.
