The Z39.50 integration is intended for integrating Alma search with other automated systems for the purposes of inter-library loan, copy catalog, or selection. Using the Z39.50 integration for other workflows, such as performing bulk export of records, is not supported.

Z39.50 is a national and international (ISO 23950) standard defining a protocol for computer-to-computer information retrieval. Z39.50 makes it possible for a user in one system to search and retrieve information from other computer systems (that have also implemented Z39.50) without knowing the search syntax that is used by those other systems. Z39.50 was originally approved by the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) in 1988. For general information about the Z39.50 protocol, see: Z39.50
