OCLC brings library developer community together to create new tools on top of OCLC APIs

"This is such a great way to bring the library development community together," explained Roy Tennant, one of the founders of the OCLC Developer Network. "We are so pleased with the creativity of the implementations and expect the tools created these two days to continue delivering long-term value for libraries and library users around the world."

The above figure created by Tim McCormick in "A Web Services Taxonomy: not all about the data" should make us think of what we can do to move our products to the "high value transactional" quadrant. Opening up and creativity from the development community will be key elements of developing these high value transactional applications.
