Dear Meghan, Before investing into a custom API, you might want to read a paper Ruben Verborgh and I wrote with the wonderful people from the Cooper Hewitt museum to warn against the “fallacy of the Multi-API culture”. It was published in the Journal of Documentation, but you can find a freely available pre-print here: http://freeyourmetadata.org/publications/rest.pdf.
