This Node.js SDK is made to interface with the ISBNdb.com API to retrieve information on books. ISBNdb.com's remote access application programming interface (API) is designed to allow other websites and standalone applications use the vast collection of data collected by ISBNdb.com including data including nearly 1,800,000 books and almost 3,000,000 library records.
The new Google Patent Search API is now available and lets you search over 7 million patents via code. It is part of the AJAX Search API suite of content-specific Google search utilities such as book search, government search, code search and others.
