In conjunction with the OCLC API Mashathon at VALA next week, I'm posting a tutorial on how to use the xISSN service to enhance local information about serials. This tutorial discusses how to use the xISSN services to enhance an existing library user interface--such as a catalog--by adding information from the xISSN service. It demonstrates how to add two things on the fly to a library catalog full record display screen:
1. whether or not a journal is peer reviewed 2. a link to the latest journal table of contents
What have you done with xISSN? Comments welcome with links to your catalog or describe your mashup in the comments. We can feature your work in the xISSN Application Gallery.
