This paper introduces the background of SRU(Search and Retrieve via URL) protocol and why the OCLC SRW/U tool are employed in NSL(National Science Library of China). More specifically, the authors describe the architecture of the integration service platform based on SRU, the implementation of the SRU interface and the context-based service integration, the modification of legacy service systems in NSL. Finally, this paper introduces two applications based on the SRU server in NSL: the user desktool and the new Website of NSL. With the same techniques described here, other libraries can create their own SRU server and provide the embedded services for their specific needs and audiences.

Key wordsEmbedded service      SRU      Service integration      User-centered
