This section is for detailing any prototypes made with this set. We haven't found any examples yet: let us know if you've made something.
The API is built on Apache Solr, and appears to return XML. The base URL is http://collections.rmg.co.uk/solr (returns a 500)
It is not terribly well documented.
This sample query will find all records with ‘Nelson’ in the title, return the title and description and provide a facet count of each record type: http://collections.rmg.co.uk/solr/?q=name:Nelson&facet=on&facet.field=type&fl=name,%20description
Ooh, average-large museum sized...
