Hi all,

I just saw this on programmable web:

The Open Library has released an API now providing access to metadata about 
13.4 million books, including over 234,000 records with full-text for the 
book. See:

http://blog.programmableweb.com/2008/05/16/open-library-api-cataloging-13-million-books/

Does anybody know if they are also working on a Linked Data interface to 
their catalog?

If not, this API really cries for a Linked Data wrapper :-)

Cheers

Chris
