Changes Coming to the BHL API on 12 June 2017

The BHL API will be updated on 12 June 2017. The current Contributor element will be replaced with a HoldingInstitution element in the result sets of the following API methods:

GetItemMetadata
GetItemByIdentifier
GetTitleMetadata
GetTitleItems
BookSearch
NameGetDetail

Here is an example of the change:

Current API Response:

<Contributor>MBLWHOI Library</Contributor>
<RightsHolder>MBLWHOI Library</RightsHolder>
<ScanningInstitution>MBLWHOI Library</ScanningInstitution>

New API Response:

<HoldingInstitution>MBLWHOI Library</HoldingInstitution>
<RightsHolder>MBLWHOI Library</RightsHolder>
<ScanningInstitution>MBLWHOI Library</ScanningInstitution>

Detailed documentation for the BHL APIs is available at http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/api2/docs/docs.html. It will be updated to reflect these changes after they are moved into production on 12 June 2017.
