If you are at an Ontario college that had a Gale account before the Knowledge Ontario account was created, use that account name as your Requester ID instead of the Knowledge Ontario one that starts with "ko_acd_".
For all Ontario colleges, your Customer ID is: loc|ko_acd_xxx (replace "xxx" with your account code).
The token expires every 2 years so must be regenerated if it expires.
This service requires your institution's account number as the Customer ID and Requester ID, plus API key.
