We use Alma/Primo. There's a barebones collection in Alma, but with minimal data (no thumbnail or full description, iirc) and we have to request Ex Libris to update it every few months. It's still the best available to us given our time/staffing constraints though.
We've repeatedly asked Lynda.com to provide their higher quality data directly to Ex Libris - then it'd be available in either Summon or Primo, we'd just need to click a button. It took me a few tries to get them to even understand how useful this would be to us (and that different customers having different urls is not a blocker!), and I'm not sure how high they're prioritising it. There's also a case in with Ex Libris/Proquest on the Content Idea Exchange - https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/574345-content/suggestions/19877110-lynda-com - and it's on *their* plans, but I gather sometimes they find vendors listen more to customers than to them. So maybe more requests to Lynda.com from more customers would help speed things up.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] Lynda/Summon Integration
I am just reaching out to see if anyone has had any experience integrating Lynda.com course information into an ILS like Summon. I know that Lynda offers AICC integration but I'm wondering if anyone has successfully used this and automated it. I am thinking of taking the zip files and creating a REST service on a local server to try and expose for Summon.
Any insights are appreciated.
