Title of Presentation

API Hackery: Customizing Your Users' Experience Using APIs

Presentation Type

Presentation

Description

This presentation will demonstrate how librarians can use APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) to customize search and other library services to their patrons' specific needs. We will walk through the steps of a practical application of an API from problem identification, to API selection, to customization and implementation. Some coding knowledge is necessary to work with an API on your custom project, but less than you might think. Some time spent w/ Codecademy's code year PHP and Javascript will be enough to get started.

In the session, we'll be working at an introductory level.
