You’re in a strange city and need a nice, clean place to use the Internet and get the latest news. What do you do? Go to a local coffee shop? I said a nice, clean place. How about the library! Library Finder is perfect for you. Library Finder allows you to find libraries near you anywhere in the world.
How many times have you loved a song, knew a few lyrics, but didn't know the title or the artist? MusiCLoud matches you to the music by searching on the words you remember, then returns matches to cds, books and more freely available in nearby libraries. This app uses the WorldCat Search API to pull in albums related to the song's lyrics that are available in a nearby library.
The initial idea for this app came from the WorldCat Mashathon Boston in September 2010.
WriteCite.com is a site that helps undergraduate and upper secondary high school students create automatic citations online.

This script is based on demonstration code which the Developer Network published last year prior to code4lib. The script uses the xISSN service to see what the table of contents RSS feed is for a given journal. If a table of contents feed exists than a link to that feed is added to the screen. The link then takes the user to the table of contents feed for that journal.
This application adds a "find similar journals" link to the journal A-Z list as well as a peer reviewed indicator for journals which are peer reviewed. When the Find Similar Journals link is clicked, a new web page opens showing journal titles similar to the one that is being displayed. The code gathers related ISSN from the xISSN web service and then uses these to gather relevant subject headings from the Worldcat Search API.
This widget adds a "Find in A Library" button to the sidebar of the Wageningen UR Library Catalogue full record screen. The button builds an OpenURL for the item and routes users to the appropriate link resolver by using the OpenURL Gateway
Created at the May 2009 WorldCat Mashathon in Amsterdam, the “Also available at” sidebar in the Wageningen UR Library Catalogue development site uses the WorldCat Search API and the WorldCat Registry OpenURL Gateway to display a location-sensitive listing for other WorldCat libraries who also hold the item.
