Open Order

The Open Order web service is a service for requesting materials that are either owned by the user's library or is not owned by the library (inter library loan). The policies for ordering materials are based on those used by bibliotek.dk, and are controlled by the agencies (libraries) in the VIP database.
 
Supported protocols are SOAP over HTTPS.
 
The service consists of two operations: checkOrderPolicy and PlaceOrder.
 
CheckOrderPolicy checks that a given agency will allow for enduser ill on the material. If the pid is omitted, the operation will check that a given agency allows for ill.
 
PlaceOrder creates an order in the orderSystem. It implicitly calls checkOrderPolicy to test if the given agency accepts ill on the pid supplied.
