As of next week, all http requests to the MPG/SFX link resolver will be redirected to a corresponding https request.
The Max Planck Society electronic Book Index is scheduled to be switched to https only access the week after, starting on November 27, 2017.
Regular web browser use of the above services should not be affected.
Please thoroughly test any solutions that integrate these services via their web APIs.
