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.
Open source xISBN (and isbndb) Python library
worldcat is an open source module for the Python programming language that interacts with the WorldCat Search API and the xISBN/xLCCN/xOCLCNUM/xISSN web services. Developers can build working prototypes rapidly using the bibliographic, holdings and citation information available in WorldCat records. Sample applications, such as Google Maps, interface for displaying holdings information and a subject-based book recommender are included.
The OCLC Developer Network supports the use of OCLC Web Services—a set of tools and APIs that expose data and services for WorldCat and our member libraries and partner institutions or companies. learn more »
