To enable Google Places syncing within Stacks, you will need to have a Google Places API, and a Google Business listing. Similarly, Google Maps requires its own API Key.

These services are provided by Google, free of cost, up to a limit of 1000 requests per 24 hour period. By verifying the identity associated with the account (which requires a credit card), this limit may be increased to 150 000 requests per 24 hour period.

Note You will need to verify your Google Business account prior to using its API key. As this is done by mail, it's important to take that delay into account.


  1. Enter your Google Places API key

  1. Test the key: query a location with a known Google Business listing such as EBSCO

  1. Enter the Google Maps API key

  1. Click SAVE CONFIGURATION

    • If Google Maps integration is correctly configured, the maps associated with ‘Locations & Hours’ should now be enabled.
