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 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.
