Many of the Scholars Portal Applications are equipped with REST Services allowing your institution to access the underlying data for use in your own internal applications. The following page lists the URLs which will enable access to these resources. If you require additional information not available from these pages, please make a request using the contact form for the specific application in question.
The starting URL should be "http://books.scholarsportal.info/SolrRequest?raw=true&" and the rest is any parameter compatible with Solr (more about search parameters: http://wiki.apache.org/solr/SearchHandler)
A simple query with XML response for Titles with "Degas": http://books.scholarsportal.info/SolrRequest?raw=true&q=Title:Degas&start=0&rows=2000&indent=on (maximum rows returned will be limited to 1000)
A fecet query with JSON response: http://books.scholarsportal.info/SolrRequest?raw=true&rows=0&indent=on&facet=true&facet.limit=20&facet.mincount=1&facet.field=LCC1-sortable&facet.field=SubjectLCSH-sortable&facet.field=Contributor-sortable&facet.field=Series-sortable&facet.field=Type-sortable&facet.field=Language-sortable&wt=json&json.wrf=Solr.retrieve&q=Title:Degas
Solr throws an error if an undefined field is used, so make sure to include the correct field names from schema .
