Answer

Due to the large amount of traffic that we are receiving on our API, it was necessary for us to implement caching to ensure that the API performance did not decline with increased usage.  Currently the cache is being refreshed 3 hours after new content is added or edited *

The new cache both reduces the load on our server, as well as ensures that any requests made to our API are loaded very quickly within your library / school webpages.  The API caching is similar to what we already have in place for the RSS feeds as well as our search indexing, in that the cache is refreshed automatically without any intervention needed on your end. 

* If you change the API call (the URL) updates will happen upon saving the new/edited API

    This site is shutting down by, if not before, March 31, 2018.

    LibGuides v1 servers are also shutting down at that time.

    See LibGuides v2 documentation instead.
