API Access

Access library catalogue data through the BiblioCommons API. BiblioCommons is a social discovery layer for public libraries, that combines search and account management capabilities with a social sharing and discovery platform. The API enables library partners to integrate data from the BiblioCommons system into their website and other applications.  Currently the API supports public data only, and does not provide access to any customer account data. The BiblioCommons API is implemented using common REST principles. Currently the API supports GET requests over HTTPS, and returns responses as JSON objects. Read more. 

Once you've submitted this form, we'll generate an API key and send a link to documentation.
