The service provides descriptive information about books and other media resources maintained by the publisher of Books in Print, a comprehensive listing of currently available publications. Data include bibliographic description (author, title, ISBN, publication date, etc.) as well as cover image, published reviews, table of contents, and publisher's price.
API methods accept search criteria as author or contributor name, title, ISBN, UPC, and a range of other identifying values. Methods then return data specified in the request for matching resources, including bibliographic description, availability status, binding type, intended market or audience, etc.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
