As our world becomes increasingly mediated by computer, Application Program Interfaces (APIs) have become critical components in sustaining the flow of electronic data between providers and consumers. As you've helped members of your library community find and use data, you've likely seen references to APIs as a means of accessing or interacting with data. But what exactly is an API and why should librarians care? This webinar will explain the concept of an API, illustrate how APIs work and why they're useful, and introduce tools and methods for using APIs to gather data.
This webinar is part 4 of a four-part series, Data in Libraries.
Session 2, Data in Libraries, Open Data
