This looks like a great resource for someone like me who isn't a developer but wants to learn more about making use of APIs. Thanks for sharing!

Subject: [CODE4LIB] `APIs for Librarians` -- A thing I've been doing that I'd like to share with you all
I want to help people easily use web APIs to enhance their library websites and/or research guides. So, I made a site that has copy/pasteable code along with instructions on how to implement it (like what exactly to change in the code to make it work with their libguides system, for example).
It's a project in ongoing development and I wanted to share it with you all
* You're nifty
* Some (hopefully many!) of you might be interested in using some of my code
* Some of you might be interested in contributing new pieces to the site
Currently I have implementations for various Springshare products, Quotes.net, and a variety of collections from the Internet Archive. I have plans on making things for the New York Times, Wordnik, OCLC, and Chronicling America (from LOC).
Would love to hear comments. I hope you like it.
