Online bookseller Erapublications has an API for its in2Era web service for selling ebooks through online distributors. According to its documentation, this RESTful API, which requires an authentication key, integrates its catalog onto your site. Distributors get a cut of the sales.
We have added six APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory in such categories as Translation, Recognition, Email and File Sharing. Also recently added were several SDKs for DreamFactory API platform and what3words location pinpoint service. Here's a rundown of the new additions.
The US Department of Education has issued a Request for Information (RFI) regarding the use of APIs in higher education data, student aid programs and processes. The goal of the RFI is to gather ideas that will increase the openness of higher education data, processes, and aid to students and families. The RFI is directed towards all interested parties, and submissions will be accepted through June 2, 2014.
