This request will return holdings and item information for all items associated with a bibliographic record ID.


None required.

URL request syntax

The base syntax is:{HOLLIS_number}

There is also a way to get a “brief” response (described below), with the pattern:{HOLLIS_number}/brief

With optional jsonp callback parameter:{HOLLIS_number}?jsonp={callback function name}

and for the “brief” response:{HOLLIS_number}/brief?jsonp={callback function name}

Note: when there are multiple elements within the response, for example, more than one collection for a holding, the jsonp format will return them as an array of objects associated with the element.
