The service allows applications to access digitized images from the New York Public Library collections. Searches can retrieve photos, maps, posters, illuminated manuscripts, ebooks, and other content from a repository of over 300,000 scanned images. Much of the material documents rare and historic resources from the NYPL collections.
API methods support submitting a search query with a keyword to match against collection records, with optional parameters to limit the match to image captions, subject descriptors, name of the creator or other person involved, etc. Search can be limited by to specific albums, books, etc. within the NYPL collection. Images can also be retrieved by NYPL call number or by provenance (all images from a specific source).
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.
