The service provides a registry of permanently valid resource identifiers for entities within the GÃ‰ANT infrastructure that serves European educational institutions and affiliated people. For each registered resource, a Uniform Resource Name (URN) is logged in a format resembling an http:// web address. Each URN is associated with an http:// URL where that resource is currently accessed. If the resource must move to a new URL, the registry listing may be updated, allowing the persistent identifier to redirect to an updated location and access the resource.
API methods support submission of a request containing a URN with special characters in escaped format. The API returns the current URL associated with that identifier. Methods also support listing all currently registered URNs and their associated URLs.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
