German Digital Library releases API

“Last month the German Digital Library Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek – DDB made a promising step forward toward further opening up their data by releasing its API Application Programming Interface to the public. This API provides access to all the metadata of the DDB released under a CC0 license, which is the predominant share. The release of this API opens up a wide range of possibilities for users to build applications, create combinations with other data or include the German digitised cultural heritage on other platforms. In the future, the DDB also plans to organize a programming competition for API applications as well as a series of workshops for developers.” (via OpenGLAM)
