"Today in History" Style Holdings ShowcaseThis project uses DBPedia as third party input to the WorldCat Discovery API, generating holdings for date-based events. Created at Developer House, December 2014.
This application is designed to showcase holdings related to a topical theme, similar to a "today in history" widget that would feature holdings relevant to a given day. The current prototype takes "Born today SPARQLed" DBPedia entities and runs them against the WorldCat Discovery API to bring back what is available locally.
