Developer-level access to QuestionPoint knowledge base Question and Answer (Q&A) pairs that QuestionPoint libraries saved for future re-use, for FAQ pages, for patron searches. The QuestionPoint global knowledge base is a collection of Q&A pairs contributed by nearly 500 libraries worldwide. Local knowledge bases are built and maintained by single libraries or regional library groups and usually contain information more specific to that group.
For example, the QuestionPoint knowledge base API could be used to retrieve a list of questions that have been asked on the topic of baseball. The API could then be used to return information about a specific question on that topic.
For example: Which National League baseball teams have never won a World Series?
Question-and-Answer pairs and their accompanying metadata such as keywords, date question was last updated, what library the question came from, the date the question was received, what library answered the question, and the date the question was answered.
