Want To Catalog Your Books For Free, Take a Look at Biblios.net

You are a small library and you can’t afford OCLC's fees to catalog your books and you are wondering what to do?

Liblime has a solution for you. Last week they introduced biblios.net, the first largest free database of licensed library records.

biblios.net features an intuitive metadata editor complete with templates, macros, authority auto-completion and embedded context-sensitive help. The central record repository contains 25-million bibliographic records and just under eight-million authority records. The data is maintained by biblios.net users similar to the model used by Wikipedia.

Catalogers can use and contribute to the database without restrictions because records in biblios.net are freely-licensed under the Open Data Commons Public Domain Dedication and License (https://biblios.net/open-data-commons-license).

Biblios.net, also tries to build a social community with built-in forums, email integration and planned real time chat. Get the details from Library Technology Guides.
