Cambridge University and OCLC Research Collaborate on Open Metadata Project

OCLC Research and Cambridge University will jointly conduct a six-month, JISC-funded investigation into the value of making collection metadata openly available in a sustainable manner. The COMET (Cambridge OPen METadata) project will release a sub-set of bibliographic data from Cambridge University Library catalogs as linked data in multiple formats. This activity will test a number of technologies and methodologies for releasing open bibliographic data including XML, RDF, SPARQL, and JSON
