The data available from the Data Library is sourced from the public Paleomagntism.org HTTPS API available at https://api.paleomagnetism.org. This API can be used by your software to access the data holdings of our collective archive in an automated way.
All requests to the API must be made using HTTPS GET and return JSON (
application/json). The implemented methods are:
Returns a list of available publications. Each publication is attributed a persistent identifier that can be used with the API.

All requests to the API must be made using HTTPS POST using MIME type (
multipart/form-data). The implemented methods are:
Submit a publication to the data library using the command line. Required fields are: "author", "name", "institution", "description", and one or multiple collection files under arbitrary names. An example python implementation can be found here.
