Rael Dornfest has an interesting article on the Google API. One function which is described in the article is the use of Google's spelling feature. I have been using dumps from WordNet for this kind of thing but the Google API really does this well. Here is another possible illustration of the advantages of component-based library systems. You can wire in the Google API with SOAP for supporting "did you mean" kinds of searches for your catalogue if you are not tied to a monolithic ILS. The API is unfortunately limited to 1,000 searches a day, and Google may eventually pull the plug, but it's an interesting example of how libraries may be able to take advantage of web services.

As an aside: Art, I passed around the URL to your article on a Library Application Framework (that uses components and SOAP) and it struck a chord here. We are thinking we will pursue this avenue for future projects. We are supposed to write up a proposal that we can give to the medical school; this will be an important part of it.

Are you still developing on OSDLS? Have you integrated any of these ideas into that code?

I think the Google service is a good example of this though, like you said, I doubt it will remain free, or available, forever. We were very excited about being able to get Google results in XML before that service was terminated.



Out, out brief candle!
... it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
