The British Library is developing a version of the British National Bibliography which it will make available as Linked Open Data.

The preview system represents a work in progress, but one we hope is sufficiently developed to be of interest to external audiences. Some further details and background documentation may be found at: http://www.bl.uk/bibliographic/datafree.html
