Diffbot has come out of beta announcing the APIs ability to extract content from sites that fit into two page-types: article and front page. The Diffbot engine can determine, just by rendering and looking at a page, what type of page it is. Is it an article or a front page news site? Maybe it's a profile page from a social network. Diffbot’s artificial brain has been literally trained to know the difference. Developers can make 50,000 calls to the Diffbot API per month for free with additional calls available for fractions of a cent. This pricing should encourage wide adoption and experimentation.
EBSCO announced that Sweden's Stockholm University has selected the EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) which includes custom integration of the EDS API into the institution's library software platform. The University was looking for a reliable search and discovery solution that would be easy to integrate with the existing library software platform.
