Listen to the workshop recording
The WorldCat Metadata API supports a variety of cataloging functionality for libraries to catalog their collections in WorldCat. This API provides you with the tools to create applications to add new, and enrich existing, WorldCat bibliographic records, and maintain WorldCat institution holdings and local bibliographic data.
In this workshop, we'll review the features, discuss some practical use cases, and demonstrate how the API works. Then we'll open up the conversation to ask about the ways you are thinking about using it: What problems are you trying to solve? Where do you see it adding value for your institution? If you are already working with the WorldCat Metadata API, you're welcome to join us and talk about the problems you're solving and your experiences working with this API.
You'll come away with a better understanding of how the API works, some ideas for implementation, and answers to the questions you bring.
