Dear All,

Hugues from McCord sent along this great email with links to some of  
the API solutions that museums are using.

Have a look...

Welcome to the list Hugues!

Best,
Jess

> Digital New-Zealand API
> http://www.digitalnz.org/developer

> The Victoria & Albert has also developed an API (still in beta),  
> which incorporates social media and user generated content
