The OCLC is a nonprofit computer library service and research organization which maintains WorldCat, a global network of library content. The Registry API gives developer-level access to information in the Worldcat Registry. With the API users can accomplish the following:
* Search for basic information about institutions and consortia based on a variety of infromation in their WorldCat Registry Profile
* Retrieve detailed information about a single institution or consortium, based on Institution ID or OCLC Symbol
* Retrieve OpenURL resolver information based on Instution ID, OCLC Symbol, or IP address
The API uses REST and SRU protocol and responses are formatted in XML and HTML.
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.
