Developer APIs

Talis has a number of APIs that allow developers to get data from within Talis products and present it in places that we would never have thought to put it.

If you would like assistance with any of these APIs then please do contact us via the support desk.

Talis can provide consultancy to help you make the most of these APIs.

This article introduces each of our APIs and gives a description of what you could do with it.

Authenticated (JSON) APIs

The Authenticated APIs are a new set of APIs that are currently being used by Talis to power new features such as reviews 2.0. Find out what you need for access, as they are secured by OAuth 2.0 access tokens.

List Linking API

The list linking API answers the question “Which lists are there for my Module?” or "Which lists are there for my module in this time period?"

Linked Data API

The Linked Data API allows access to the underlying graph data in the Talis Aspire Reading Lists system.

Item Linking API

The item linking API allows you to answer the question “What lists have this resource on it?” You can pass in an identifier like an ISBN, DOI or LCN.

Bookstore API Specification

This article specifies a simple REST-based service that booksellers can implement in order to provide Talis Reading Lists with information about items that they sell.

Bookmarklet API

The Bookmarklet API is a way to launch links straight into the 'bookmark creation' screen of Talis Aspire Reading Lists. This means that you can create "Bookmark this" style links in your library catalogue or other resource discovery system.

Generating a .har file

This article explains how to create a .har file which can provide useful information to Talis support staff about the network connections between your browser and Talis and whether any of those connections are evidence of an issue.
