In Spring 2011, the New York Public Library (NYPL) launched one of the largest culinary data projects of all time: What's on the Menu?. The NYPL maintains one of the world's largest menu collections (around 45,000 menus dating back to the 1840s). The project aims to ease searching through this massive dataset. In simplifying menu search, What's on the Menu launched the first NYPL public API.
We've added 10 APIs to the directory today in Travel, Government, and Real Estate categories, among others. Also new are Ruby and Python libraries for ActiveCampaign email API.
