Hello WorldCat Search API Implementers,
The WorldCat Search API will have an install this Sunday September 19, 2010. The service is expected to remain available during this update scheduled to occur between 2am and 4am ET.
This install will correct various problems discovered over the month.
1) The LCCN provided in the RSS and Atom formats will now work correctly for all ISSNs including those with one or two character prefixes.
2) The MLA formatted citations has been corrected. It will provide the “type of material” at the end of the citation.
3) JSON library requests will handle quotes within the data correctly.
4) Library names that have diacritics will once again display correctly.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
