1. Introduction

The Danish ISO 20775 profile for holdings requests [1] specifies the format of holdings information, but do not include a specification of exchange of requests and responses. This is synchronously with ISO 20775:2009 Information and documentation -- Schema for holdings [2], which only define the schema.

2. Scope

This specification describes how to transport holdings information with special consideration to lookup of holdings information from the Danish National Union Catalogue to public and research libraries in Denmark. The response is intend to be used for selection of library to send a ILL request using Danish ISO 18626 profile for ILL transactions [3].

3. Look-up of holdings information


3.1 Specification of lookup of one title in local data base


Lookup of one title in local data base from DanBib or bibliotek.dk to be done by SRU [4] according to this model :




The local library record id "12345678" is to be replaced by the actual local id in the actual local database.


The server "sruserver.nyby.dk" is the local server and "program" is name of the local programme. For use by DanBib and bibliotek.dk for lookup op in local data bases, the local libraries shall register URL of local server and program in VIP-basen as one parameter.


To support this specification of look-up holdings information does not imply to support other SRU searches or to support use of isohold for more than one record per search.



3.2 Specification of lookup of more than one title


Even lookup of more than one title is outside the scope of this specification this information: A query for more than one title is possible with SRU,  by using Boolean operator or.



3.3 Specification of response
