      Description

      OCLC has announced the end of their xID services, which VuFind uses for linking to related editions on the record view:

      http://www.oclc.org/developer/news/2015/change-to-xid-services.en.html

      We will need to remove this functionality from VuFind, since no successor service has been announced.

      Once the API is offline, VuFind's attempts to access it may cause performance problems and/or errors, especially in early versions (i.e. VuFind 1.x) which had less robust error handling.

      Instructions for disabling the service in earlier versions of VuFind will be posted here as best practices are determined. Please post comments here if you have questions/problems.
