Ncip Information

  1. 1. NISO Circulation Interchange Protocol (NCIP) The screenshots on the following pages are the NCIP messages that the CircGateway sends to the circulation systems. We send all the top level elements that have a solid outline. We also send some optional ones (dashed outline). The important elements are highlighted here: RequestItem – This is what we send to do a place hold on both lending and borrowing side. There are slight differences in the elements that we send depending on lending or borrowing side that I’ll highlight below. o Lending side  UniqueUserId – This represents the user identifier of the institutional patron (patron record that represents the borrowing library).  UniqueBibliographicId – This is the element that we use to hold the OCLC number that represents the item. o Borrowing side  UniqueUserId – This represents the user identifier of the actual patron that is borrowing the item.  UniqueItemId – We use this element on the borrowing side instead of the UniqueBibliographicId. This holds the item barcode that represents the item. AcceptItem – This is what we send to the borrowing side to have their circ system create a temporary item that represents the item and place a hold on it on behalf of the user o UniqueUserId – This represents the user identifier of the actual patron that is borrowing the item. o UniqueItemId – This holds the item barcode that represents the item. o BibliographicDescription – Holds the item data that they need that describes the item. CheckOutItem – We send this to the lending site to check-out the item to the institutional patron. This happens when the lender ships the item to the borrower. o UniqueItemId – This is the barcode of the item that the lender entered. o UniqueUserId – This represents the user identifier of the institutional patron (patron record that represents the borrowing library). CheckInItem – We send this on both the lending and borrowing side. o UniqueItemId – This is the main element that we send. This has the item barcode. Page 1 of 6
