You may already be aware of these but a couple of JISC projects completed at the end of July which are publishing open bibliographic data:

Cambridge University Library (following it's earlier release of MARC records) has now released 2.2 million records as RDF/Linked Data under ODC-PDDL (see http://data.lib.cam.ac.uk/datasets.php)
University of Lincoln have released a variety of datasets including library catalogue records, institutional repository records, e-journal (title) records and journal table of contents information - records are available via an API as RDF/XML, JSON or RIS. Data is licensed as CC0 except the tables of contents stuff which is CC-BY. See http://jerome.blogs.lincoln.ac.uk/2011/08/01/its-the-final-blog-post/ for more details.

Both projects have also produce a range of open source tools/software that would enable other institutions to do the same - some already available and some 'coming soon'
