API, OS, ETC

Wednesday, February 16th 2005

The Shifted Librarian mentioned the idea of a standardized API for library catalog/circulation systems.

Don’t know why I never thought of it before, but the idea is brilliant. Only problem could be getting vendors to go along with it.

While I’m on the topic, are there any good open source catalog/circulation systems? Libraries seem like a natural fit for the OS development model.
