Join us for the second webinar in our API Workshop series as we dive into real-world use of the WorldCat knowledge base API, a read-only service that supports e-resource discovery and OpenURL linking.

This one hour workshop will include an overview of the functionality and potential use cases, and will feature Jeff Carter and Brian Cassidy from the University of New Brunswick. They'll show us their eResources discovery and eBooks search interfaces, and then take us behind-the-scenes for a code walkthrough. You'll have plenty of time to get answers for all your questions.

You'll come away with a better understanding of how the API works, some ideas for implementation, and answers to the questions you bring.
