The Patrons Account Information API (PAIA) provided by GBV, provides methods for looking up loaned and reserved items, requesting and cancelling loans and reservations, and looking up fees and general patron information. This service is intended to facilitate patron access to integrated library systems. All of PAIA's sources and updates can be found in its public git repository. The GBV Catalogue gives access to the titles in over 250 libraries in the German states Bremen, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Niedersachsen, Sachsen-Anhalt, Schleswig-Holstein, Thüringen and the Foundation of Prussian Cultural Heritage.
We've added 6 APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory in the Healthcare, Library, and Caching categories, among others. Included is BaasBox API, which allows developers to integrate a free, open source, mobile back-end platform. Here, we summarize the new additions and how they can assist developers.
