With the release of discovery services and their associated APIs, we can do more. Rather than linking back to the library, we can take our resources and push them into the learning experience, allowing them to escape the library website silo altogether. Imagine a professor being able to search library resources and add items to their course website without ever leaving their CMS, or a student adding items to a folder that shows up in their campus dashboard. What if we could tie the use of library resources to student success in the classroom by leveraging user data from CMS tools? In this session, I will briefly describe how APIs might make these scenarios possible, but then facilitate a discussion on where else we could shove our resources. I hope to initiate a few development projects along these lines.

Inspired by Ed Summers' work (wikistream, wikipulse), we are creating audio and visual representations of the live stream of wikipedia edits. We're trying to capture something about the frequency and contested nature of controversial and high-edit-volume pages. We want to present the edit stream using artistic representations that convey the funky dialectic of wikipedia editing.
