Cet événement est terminé.

The WorldCat Registry API now has an RDF/XML Interface for discovering data about libraries. The WorldCat Registry API provides machine-readable access to descriptions for over 100,000 libraries and other organization, including names, addresses and the services they offer. Developers can use this data to enhance their websites with contact details, hours information, links to OPACs and more.

In this workshop, we'll review the features and discuss some use cases. We'll also include a gentle introduction to RDF and then demonstrate how the RDF Interface works with a code walkthrough of a practical application.

We'll open up the conversation to ask about the ways you are thinking about using it: What problems are you trying to solve? Where do you see it adding value for your institution? If you are already working with the WorldCat Registry API, you're welcome to join us and talk about the problems you're solving and your experiences working with this API.

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