This API allows you to turn book identifier information (ISBN, LCCN etc.) into direct links to Open Library's online-readable or borrowable books from the Open Library lending program. Returned items may include readable matches for different editions of the same work and information from the Data API including all Open Library data about a book. It is used to request information on one or more books using library identifiers such as; ISBNs, OCLC Numbers, LCCNs and OLIDs (Open Library Identifiers). Requests can be made in formats of single and multiple. Open Library has developed a suite of APIs to help developers get up and running with the provided reference data. They lend ebooks worldwide, and have over two million free ebooks available and 250,000 more in the lending library, where there is a web page for every book.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
