Welcome to the Bookshare Developer Network!

2017!  We continue to appreciate the breadth of developers around the globe who are integrating with Bookshare to bring accessible books to people with Print Disabilities. You are part of the socially conscious work we do here at Benetech every day, so thank you! We have numerous partners who have already integrated Bookshare into their respective programs and products; you can view some of those in our Reading Tools section on Bookshare.

The big news for this year in Bookshare is that we have begun to "Beta" our new V2 API, and with that come calls that allow you to implement our Reading Lists into your tool. (For those of you not yet familiar with Reading Lists, please learn more from our Help Center.

In order to directly integrate access to Bookshare books for basic services like Search, Download and Authenticated Services, please sign up for an API account and request an application key to start developing. If you are interested in the Reading List Beta, please send a note to partner-support@bookshare.org


There are other projects going on in our Literacy Program, so stay tuned for updates there. 



Where to next? Have a look at our " Getting Started" section and let's get going!
