refbase OpenSearch API - Comments

The service provides bibliographic search to return citations matching a submitted query. Its architecture complies with the SRU (Search/Retrieve via URL) standard promulgated by the U.S. Library of Congress which uses CQL (Common Query Language) to structure interactions with the service. API methods support submission of a bibliographic search query stated in CQL syntax. The API returns metadata for matching resources in MODS format embedded in a SRU/W XML wrapper.
