New York Times APIs

I’m catching up on blog reading after ages away from home and found two new APIs from the New York Times.

First the TimesTags API:

Today we’re releasing the TimesTags API, which is the gateway to a lush garden of Times metadata. What’s so great about metadata? Well, you’ve probably heard that “information wants to be free.” But even more than that, information wants to be found. And metadata — data about the data — improves findability.

Second the Movie Reviews API:

Today we’re launching the Movie Reviews API, a new way to access over 22,000 New York Times movie reviews going all the way back to 1924.

Keep ’em coming!!! This is great stuff. One day soon we’re going to see a ‘super OPAC’ that uses a ton of APIs to enhance content displayed to our patrons!!
