East Sussex County Council is the local government of East Sussex, a set of rural entities in South London. The county features The Keep, a global center that keeps archives up to date. In the document site, The Keep API shows a clear guide for those developers interested to create a database with collections of archives. Easy to use, clear and flexible are the main benefits of this open search API that uses Apache Lucene Query Parser Syntax. The Keep API features the license Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial 2.0 UK: England & Wales, which indicates developers are asked to provide credit in the mashup. The Keep also invites developers to use the API for commercial use, once there is an agreement for licensing terms. Examples are provided on the collections base OpenSearch API response.
