Does Library Elf require the Patron API product?
We are installing an open-source next-generation catalog, and would like
to offer "My account" features such as placing holds, and viewing
currently-charged books with due dates, etc. My best guess is that we
need Patron API to make these services available in the new catalog.
However, I know that Library Elf is able to access data from patron
accounts. Does it do this through Patron API, or is there another way
to access this information?
