Building a PHP code library for Interacting with an Linked Data-based Discovery API - Karen Coombs (OCLC): The WorldCat Discovery API has the typical abilities you’d expect for building your own local discovery world: search access to WorldCat bibliographic and article data, facets, a variety of search indexes, and links to holdings. Because an RDF-based model is fairly new to libraries, we decided we could increase the adaptability of the API by providing a code library that would streamline the development process. This presentation will discuss the process of creating object-oriented PHP code library which would make the semantically rich entities and data available in a fashion that was more familiar to programmers used to working in OO PHP.<br />

. At the same time we brought up VuFind as our new discovery layer. This talk will describe the deployment architecture for both applications, including myriad integration points with external systems.
