z39.50 Self Validation App
Use this web page to test the configuration of your z39.50 server. You should confirm that your configuration works before submitting it to IA. Please be sure that our IP ranges are whitelisted on your server:
Fill out the forms below. You must fill out all of the Z Target fields with the exception of user and password (if they are not required to connect to your catalog). You must fill out any Z Profile fields for which IA will need to use to search for records. It is preferable that as many Z Profile fields as possible be filled out. Finally, fill out the Test Search firlds to attempt to retrieve a record from your catalog. You can repeat this with any search type definied in the Z Profile fields. We will attempt to fetch a record from your catalog using the search query. If there are more than one record matching that query, we will retrieve the first one.
Once you have verified that IA can retrieve records from your catalog for all search types required, you can copy the contents of Target XML and Profile XML and provide them to IA to add your catalog permanently to our system. Please be sure to check the character encoding on the retrieved records to ensure that diacritics and other characters appear to be encoded properly.
