Endeavor's Voyager provides access to the bibliographic database via Microsoft Access routed through Oracle ODBC drivers on MS Windows. This presents barriers for installation and for programming. An alternative exists. It involves a python library that accesses Voyager's database via Jpype and an Oracle JDBC driver. This makes possible single .exe file installation and programming with free tools. Useful programs developed include a barcode lookup helper and a local database replicator for faster SQL experimentation.
