This really is good news.

I added the CKAN package you already registered[1] to the Linked
Library Data[2] and bibliographic data[3] group. If you add
information about links to other datasets to the package as described
in [4] this will be reflected in the LLD group's visualization[5], the
"Linked Library Data cloud".

Is NDL considering open licensing and publishing a full data dump ?

All the best
