Workshop on APIs for the Digital Humanities

Longtime readers of this blog may remember that one of my first posts examined the potential role for APIs (application programming interfaces) in the humanities. It’s also been a long-running theme in this space that APIs can play a critical role in digital research and tool-building. So I’m very much looking forward to this weekend’s workshop on APIs for the digital humanities in Toronto sponsored by NiCHE: Network in Canadian History & Environment. Like others, I’ll be tweeting the conference @dancohen using the hashtag #apiworkshop.

I am very interested in APIs, and even more in apps based on APIs (I used to be a programmer but not any more). I believe that APIs can really change the way we do history research, since it will give us the large amountof data we can use for search patterns.
Does anyone know about Google Books app, that can give me a list of all philosophy books published between 1800 and 1820, for example? Or any similar application that I will be able to modify?
