(Ed Chamberlain presenting) – COMET (Cambridge Open Metadata) – follow on from the Open Bibliography project– collaborating with CARET at Cambridge, with support from OCLC.

Want to publish lots of Open Bibliographic data – engaging with RDF, enriching records with FAST and VIAF linking – and will document experiences

Be taking MARC21 encoded records from library catalogue – data taken from main University Library catalogue – historical mix of quality and origin built overtime – some mixture of standards as cataloguing practice has changed over time

Data will be made available as MARC21 (bulk download) and also RDF/XML (bulk download and triple-store with SPARQL endpoint etc.) Will publish where possible under PDDL, but will need discussions with OCLC where it includes data from OCLC derived records…
