Dataset - 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, ‡, is now available!

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

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

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

  1. Re-use/openness

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