This prototype Android app uses the WorldCat Search API to get citations and nearby libraries for books. Users can scan a barcode or search for a title either by a keyword search or using the device’s support for voice recognition. Users can then select items to add to their personalized list of things. The mobile device’s GPS tells the app where the user is and the app uses that information and the Search API to find nearby libraries.
The OCLC Developer Network supports the use of OCLC Web Services—a set of tools and APIs that expose data and services for WorldCat and our member libraries and partner institutions or companies. learn more »
