We have mentioned already about the idea of Linked Open Data. Recently the CERN Library, willing to implement this idea, have published their entire library catalog as a sing MARC-XML file. Moreover, works on publishing the same data as the RDF file are now in progress.

Data from CERN Library will be used by Open Library Project and biblios.net, which will give access to this data via the Z39.50, SRU and OAI-PMH protocols. The file with the bibliographic data, published on the Creative Commons CC0 (“No copyright”) license can be downloaded from the CERN Library website.

The press release about this event was accompanied by a short advertisement – please take a look:
