Ulrich's API

Bibliographic Wilderness has a very informative posting Ulrich’s has an API included with your ulrichsweb subscription: A Review.
It turns out if you subscribe to Ulrichsweb, there is an API you are already licensed to use. The API does expose a few key pieces of data you may find useful (such as a boolean value for ‘refereed’). It sadly lacks a few things included in the Ulrichsweb directory itself that would be awfully useful (such as review text).

There is very little evidence on the web that the API even exists.
Good introduction. Provides info on how to get access and what data is available.
