Many ArchivesSpace institutions have very detailed archival data in ArchivesSpace but also maintain collection level records in their ILS. Additionally, some institutions store their holdings information for rare books and manuscripts in their ILS rather than ArchivesSpace. If one system could synchronize data to the other, there would be less opportunity for inconsistencies and less duplication of work.
Based on the Resource record provided by a user, the integrations will perform the following API calls:
*Check for a BIB with the Resource's MMS ID
*Check for holdings associated with the BIB identified by that MMS ID
Additionally, the integrations allow a user to add new holdings, create a new BIB record if no MMS ID is present or the provided MMS ID does not match any BIB record in Alma, or sync changes to a Resource in ArchivesSpace with the BIB record uniquely identified by the Resource's MMS ID.
