What is the XML Export feature used for?

The XML Export is a piece of the Images and Backups Module for LibGuides & LibGuides CMS.

It gives you the ability to download an XML file with all of the LibGuides content for your institution.

You can then use these XML files locally to:

  • create data mashups,
  • feed them to your institution’s search appliance (so folks will find your LibGuides right from your library/university/college/company's site search), or
  • use the data for any other purpose.

(If anyone has done anything different & exciting with their data, please comment here!)

This function is available to LibGuides/LibGuides CMS admins only.

  1. Go to Modules > Images & Backups Module.
  2. At the top, you'll see whether or not this Module is active for your site.
    If it is, you'll be able to download the most recent XML export, or click the Request New XML Export link to request a new one.

Need an XML Export on a regular basis?  Email and we'll set up automated retrieval for you!

If you do not have the Images & Backups Module, contact to get more information/subscribe!
