Hi all,

I'm helping organise this hack day (and I have to admit, had thought I'd
forwarded the details to this list - but obviously had not - apologies for
this oversight).

The records are from the RLUK database which brings together library
catalogue data from major UK Research libraries - that means the majority
will be records describing books, and there will be few or no records
describing journal articles. I don't have any specific details regarding
the make up of the records, but I think you can certainly expect some
records describing theses to be included, and as well as books there are
bound to be records relating to other materials such as audio-visual, maps,
serials etc.

The records are being released in perpetuity, not just for the hack day.

Best wishes, and I hope to see some of you at the event.

Any information on what these records are? Books, Theses or journal

FWIW the JISC+OKFN developed BibJson to support integration of such
datasets. I have registered to go in case people are interested.
