Open Library API, Bibo Ontology and Digital Bibliographies

I bet we're going to want to fiddle with the Open Library API and the Bibo Ontology in the context of the Pleiades bibliography application (and some others we're thinking about, like a next-generation Checklist of Editions for papyri and the like).

  • Seek and get digital books from the Open Library.
  • Use Bibo in other-than-html serializations of the underlying MODS records, and maybe even microformatishly in the HTML version. (We already use COinS -- for interop with Zotero -- but it's lossy, ungainly and suboptimally human-readable).
Thanks to Dave Pattern (via planet code4lib) for the pointer to the OA API).
