New Interactive API Playground (I/O Docs)

Hi all,

Just a quick note that we've added a new section above called "Interactive Docs" which will make learning the API and building requests that much easier. It's powered by Mashery's I/O docs functionality, so if you sign in and have a valid (activated) key, it will be automatically entered in that page for each request you try. So go ahead, give it a whirl: http://developer.bibliocommons.com/io-docs

403 Developer Inactive: A quick reminder, the API is only available to direct library customers of BiblioCommons who sign up on this site using their official (library) email address. We cannot activate Gmail.com, Hotmail.com or agency/independent accounts, so if you get 403 Developer Inactive on the new "Interactive Docs" -- it's because your key has to be manually approved first. Thanks for your understanding!

Stay tuned here for further API change notices and new feature announcements. For non-developers, there's also our main blog at http://www.bibliocommons.com/about/blog

Thanks,
Louis
