|Get Related ISSN scripts||
This application adds a "find similar journals" link to the journal A-Z list as well as a peer reviewed indicator for journals which are peer reviewed. When the Find Similar Journals link is clicked, a new web page opens showing journal titles similar to the one that is being displayed. The code gathers related ISSN from the xISSN web service and then uses these to gather relevant subject headings from the Worldcat Search API. It then uses these subject headings to search for and display other titles that the library has that have similar subjects, allowing users to "Find Similar Journals" to the ones they are browsing.

|IDS Project: Peer Reviewer||
This mashup helps users identify peer-reviewed journals. For every ISSN the script finds, it checks the OCLC xISSN service to see if the item is peer-reviewed. If it is, then it adds a “Peer Reviewed” indicator.

|Latest Table of Contents Links||
This script is based on demonstration code which the Developer Network published last year prior to code4lib. The script uses the xISSN service to see what the table of contents RSS feed is for a given journal. If a table of contents feed exists than a link to that feed is added to the screen. The link then takes the user to the table of contents feed for that journal.

|OCLC Title History Tool||

|Peer Reviewed Journals and Writers for Henrik Ibsen||
This mash up, built during the WorldCat Mashathon 2009 in Seattle, takes an index of Ibsen scholarship from journals and conference proceedings and adds authoritativeness from canonical sources. Elements added include a peer review indicator for journals via xISSN and a WorldCat Identities links to writers listed in the Ibsen database.

|Serials Solutions E-Journal List/360Link and xISSN Mashup||
Submitted virtually as a part of the WorldCat Mashathon 2009 in Seattle, this mashup helps researchers identify peer-reviewed journals. For every ISSN the script finds using the JQuery library, it checks the OCLC xISSN service to see if the item is peer-reviewed. If it is, then it adds a “Peer Reviewed” indicator.

|WebVoyage Tomcat—OCLC Citation in ActionBox||
This actionbox/standalone citation feature, built with the WorldCat Search API, is really popular with UCOL first-year students who are new to citing sources. It retrieves a formatted citation for a book or journal in APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA or Turabian formats. The script is flexible to also use xISSN or xISBN if the OCLC number is unavailable. Downloadable code and documentation of changes are available.

|WorldCat Python Module||
An open source module for the Python programming language that interacts with the WorldCat Search API and the xISBN/xLCCN/xOCLCNUM/xISSN web services. Developers can build working prototypes rapidly using the bibliographic, holdings and citation information available in WorldCat records. Sample applications, such as Google Maps, interface for displaying holdings information and a subject-based book recommender are included.
