RESOURCE: Using Google Sheets with ESTC

In a post from Owen Stephens (Open University), readers are provided with a step-by-step guide to using Google Sheets and the English Short Title Catalogue (ESTC) to generate direct links, Wing/Short Title Catalog (STC) numbers, and other information for titles in ESTC. Stephens manages the JISC-funded TELSTAR project at the Open University.

Stephens builds on a post by Benjamin Armintor (Columbia University) exploring ways to extract Wing/STC numbers from the ESTC, and reveals the relative ease with which one may use a bit of programming and a tool like Google Sheets to approximate an API for some digital projects.
