Collaboration and NCIP 2.0

Developer collaboration leads to implementation of NCIP 2.0

Early this spring a community of library developers interested in interoperability between discovery interfaces and integrated library systems formed a working group to build on the work of the DLF ILS-DI Task force. After several months of collaboration between this developer community and OCLC team members, we are excited to announce our plans to contribute an implementation of version 2.0 of the NCIP standard, derived from the OCLC Web-scale Management Services codebase, to the eXtensible Catalog’s open-source NCIP Toolkit.

In case you are wondering, NCIP is the NISO Circulation Interchange Protocol. The standard is “intended to address the growing need for interoperability among disparate circulation, interlibrary loan, and related applications.”
