|Automatic ILL Request Verification||
This application uses C# and the WorldCat Search API to automatically find library locations that hold the requested item. The downloaded request file is processed through the application to find identifying numbers for the requested item, with those numbers sent to the Search API in a Library Locations request. The resulting list of libraries is then sorted by our own internal referral priorities and printed out on the request.

Additionally, MarcEdit makes use of the WorldShare Platforms WorldCat Search API and Metadata API to provide batch support for holdings management and bibliographic record editing of data found in WorldCat directly from within MarcEdit.

|WorldShare Acquisitions with Amazon||
The WorldShare Amazon App takes information about orders from the WorldShare Acquisitions web service and combines it with pricing and availability information from Amazon’s Advertising API. Librarians can then see pricing and availability for particular materials and choose to purchase them from Amazon via a cart which is created on the fly. Installation instructions are available here.
