I learned of an additional bibliographic API the other day, specifically, the API's of the HathiTrust Research Center for searching and data dumping. [1, 2] A few weeks ago, a couple of people (Beth Plale and Yiming Sun) came to visit us here at Notre Dame. They described the Center in more detail. Their implementation -- while just getting started -- is interesting from copyright, bibliographic, and computation viewpoints. For example, it is a perfect example of how software needs to move to the data when the data is too large to move to the software. I blogged about their visit.
