From Digital Library of America Project
Here are some sample apps we are either contemplating or are already constructing.
Of course we look forward to this list be supplemented with apps being developed outside of the dev core.
|Stackview Widget||Creates visual shelf, including heatmapping, out of platform returns, as well as from Amazon, WorldCat and json data (link)||Annie Cain||prototyped|
|Library Analytics||Package to display library analytics based on data from the platform||Kim Dulin and||Spec'ed and funded.|
|Multi-collections search||Search across multiple collections; show results side by side. Toy. (link)||dw||semi-working primitive prototype|
|Long Tail Browser||Search returns interesting items from the long tail||No further work scheduled||Current version simply returns descending list of unintersting results. Not clear what constitutes interestingness yet.|
|Reed-Elsevier integration||When searching at R-E, also send the query to the dplaplatform and display the results in a stackview.||Unassigned||-|
|Zeega||Integrate Zeega. Note when an item is in a Zeega collection? Enable Zeega to use dplatform items in its collections?||Zeega||Zeega has agreed to work on this for Phase 1|
|Wikipedia book page integration||Generate a list of WP pages about books, and return info about all the books within the same WP categories. Or something else||Paul + ?||We are doing work on finding those WP pages about books. It's hard. Not for phase 1.|
|Embeddable widget||Small graphic that can be displayed by other sites when DPLA has some info about an item. E.g., a local library could display usage info from the DPLA about books in the local library's collection.||Matt and Paul||Working prototype needs to be tuned to the data in the dplatform|
|Shelve.me||Bookmarklet that, if used on a book page (Amazon, Google, DPLA search results, a schema.org page, etc.) adds the book to a visual stack. A social site lets users manage and share their shelves.||Matt||Working prototype needs DPLA and schema.org integration.|
|Linked Data browser||Within a particular domain (probably Art Movements for the prototype) pulls together info about an item across linked data clouds, including DPLA and Europeana. Requires prep work by the developer to massage sources so the results are high quality.||Dan Brickley||Planned for Phase 1|
|Europeana 2 DPLA||An extremely lightweight app. A toy. Does a search of Europeana via its API. Click on results to look up items in the DPLA that match. Match = the raw string in the Europeana "creator" field is used as a search term in a DPLA keyword search. Displays results as a visual stack. (link)||David||"done"|
