The web is rapidly becoming a platform consisting of services and API:s Machine 2 machine communication stands in the centre Worldcat API, XISBN, Library Thing for Libraries , LIBRIS Xsearch, MetaLib | Aleph X-server, SFX API, Ebsco Host Integration Toolkit, ISI Web Services, Amazon, SRU/W, RDF | Linked Data, Google Code, Flickr API, Yahoo! Developer Network … … …
By exploring web services and new technology we gain first hand experience making us stronger customers and development partners By introducing other services into our OPAC the local collection is displayed in a broader context The OPAC turns into a small federated search service, rich in functionality and content, seamlessly integrated with the library webpages Strategy is to present library resources in a single thought through structure and presentation BUT ALSO to identify key services and make them available outside the library website
We will focus on bringing services together today but should not forget the importance of making our data available outside of the catalog Decoupling of front-end from back-end in practice means enabling your data for OAI-Harvesting External Indexing Offering API:s URL Syntax Persistent URL:s
Quick search uses deep linking/URL syntax with a simple forwarding service (PHP) The script is a focal point for several search services offered by the library: toolbar, html-template engine, search widgets … 78 116 queries in 2008
Yahoo! Spelling suggestion webservice 5000 requests / day We used to use the Google SOAP spelling suggestion service Limited to 1000 requests / day Closed to new users
Next step Getting down with Linked Data National Union Catalog – LIBRIS is available as linked data One idea is to present links to Wikipedia articles based on Authority records Google Translation of subjects, search terms Continue to explore webservices and integrate our resources making our different systems to co-operate
