A telcon discussion (next week, say) about the Open Bibliographic Data Guide
sounds useful!

Thanks for the blog post you shared, Monica. To extract/summarize, quoting from

"Recently there seems to be a surge in activity around open bibliographic metadata" in libraries and cultural heritage institutions.

"All of this effort distributed around the world begs a number of questions. Why are all these people releasing their data under open licences? What’s in it for them? What are the costs? What are the practical considerations? How have they navigated the pitfalls inherent in licensing this data?
At JISC we think there are some intriguing benefits from taking the open approach to bibliographic metadata. We think it will maximise the possibilities for reusing the metadata to develop new and innovative services for librarians, researchers, students and teachers. But what does all this innovation and experimentation mean for UK academic librarians?
JISC commissioned David Kay, Paul Miller and Owen Stephens to think about those questions and to produce a guide that academic librarians can use to establish whether this is an area they need to investigate and, if it is, how to get started.
The Open Bibliographic Data Guide is available now and it explores 17 use cases that may be furthered by taking an open approach to bibliographic data.
The guide is intended to be a living resource not a snapshot. So we are keen for people to enrich the guide by commenting."
