Quick project update ...

(Extracted from previous post for the sake of brevity)

In terms of project progress, we have a workable and easily customizable (CSV configurable) Marc21 to RDF-triples export script nearing completion. We hope to be able to share this towards the end of the project. Getting a suitable triple-store and associated software frameworks in place for a 'data.lib.cam.ac.uk' domain will be the next focus of our technical work. Work also continues on identifying records for sharing and internal discussions on licensing issues within the project, the main barrier to eventual data-release. We've also been in contact with Eric Childress and his colleagues over at OCLC in enhancing our data with identifiers for the FAST and VIAFF services.
