The service provides images of book covers for publications from New Zealand as a way to support the country's libraries and promote its publications in catalogs of relevant works. Licensing terms do not allow access by libraries and other users outside New Zealand.
API methods accept queries to identify books and other printed resources as HTTP GET requests providing unique resource identifiers such as ISBN, ISSN, ISMN, or NBD number. If found, the API returns URLs for both full-size and thumbnail images from the namespace http://digital.natlib.govt.nz that can be incorporated in the tag to include the cover image in a catalog web display.
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.
