16-MAR-2021 - New Magazine Issues API Deployed to Production

Tags: Magazine Issues API, Magazines, zinio

Our new Magazine Issues API has now been deployed to our production environment. With this API, you can access details for all available issues of a magazine.

If you haven’t done so already, you can test the Magazine Issues API available in our Partner Integration Environment using our Integration Library (https://overdriveapi.overdrive.com). See documentation for the Magazine Issues API here.

If you don’t support the magazine-overdrive format, the new Magazine Issues API shouldn’t impact your current API implementation.

How to access the Magazine Issues API

To access the Magazine Issues API, you can use the new link provided in the item response on the Search API. This will only be included on item records with the magazine-overdrive format.

You can also request the Magazine Issues API directly using a valid ID from the magazine record in the collection.

Note: Each magazine in the collection has only one record. See this blog post for more information about recent changes to magazine record structures.

The API will provide metadata for each issue, including a unique identifier that can be used for additional actions (like requesting a checkout or making a return), and a link to the cover image.

If you have any questions or concerns about the Magazine Issues API, please submit them to our support team through the Developer Portal.

As always, thanks for being an OverDrive API partner,
