DevConnect 2022: Wrapping OCLC APIs with Node.js webservices

Larry Deck of Concordia University Library will discuss how to make such webservice wrappers with Node.js, using asynchronous calls to OCLC APIs, and caching results locally to speed up repeated queries and avoid abusing OCLC services.

Join the new OCLC API Community

The Community Center is OCLC’s online forum connecting library peers to each other and to OCLC staff.  The API community offers a dedicated space for technologists to ask questions, make connections, get updates about OCLC APIs, and contribute ideas for future development.

New Community Center users without WorldShare credentials or WorldCat Discovery staff accounts will need to request community access.
