Biblios.net - the world's largest database of freely-licensed library records

Added By Infochimps
  1. About

> The beta test environment for LibLime’s new cataloging service, ‡biblios.net, is now available!

> ‡biblios.net is a subscription-based, hosted version of the open-source ‡biblios metadata editor that we released earlier this year. In addition to the editor, ‡biblios.net includes some extended community features such as integrated real-time chat, forums, and private messaging.

> ‡biblios.net also provides access to the world’s largest database of freely-licensed library records. The database will be freely available to ‡biblios.net subscribers and non-subscribers alike via Z39.50, OAI, and direct download.

> Furthermore, the database itself will be maintained by ‡biblios.net users similar to the way that Wikipedia’s database is maintained by users.

  1. Re-use/openness

> Through the ‡biblios.net network, you can share your record creations with the rest of the ‡biblios.net community, under the terms of the Open Data Commons, which ensures that anyone may freely use, modify and share your records.
