Data and services wanted
Data and services to offer
DPLA is working on a platform. Many partners, including the beta sprint teams, have developed tools, interfaces, scripts and other software to develop their collections and serve their communities. Please link to your own code and data repositories below, or note how people can request access to them.
Existing or pending projects working with the DPLA are listed below. Each should have a link to a demo, code, and any APIs. Using the Project template
Harvard Library Innovation Lab
U. Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
These are RESTful web services which expose nearly all data in our item repository, and some data in our collection registry, as JSON. The API for these services is not currently well documented. (Feel free to ask for details.)

The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is delighted to announce its first Appfest, an informal, open call for both ideas and functional examples of creative and engaging ways to use the content and metadata in the DPLA back-end platform. The first Appfest will take place on November 8-9, 2012, at the Chattanooga Public Library on The 4th Floor. The DPLA is looking for web and mobile apps, data visualization hacks, dashboard widgets that might spice up an end-user’s homepage, or a medley of all of these. There are no strict boundaries on the types of submissions accepted, except that they be open source (the DPLA platform is released under a AGPLv3 license) and interoperable with the DPLA platform.
Participants are asked to pitch ideas for apps on the DPLA Appfest wiki page before the event, as pitches made on the wiki will inform what is made on Friday, November 9th.
