Bibliographica, an Introduction
<http://blog.okfn.org/2010/05/20/bibliographica-an-introduction/>
May 20th, 2010

It's time to talk a bit about Bibliographica
<http://bibliographica.org/>, a new project of the Open Knowledge
Foundation.
Bibliographica is designed to make it easier for scholars and
researchers to share and collect information about work in their field.
It provides an open source software platform to create and share
semantically rich information about publications, authors and their works.

As readers of the Open Knowledge Foundation blog will know we have a
long-standing interest in open bibliographic data - from our efforts
starting in 2005 to build a database of public domain works
<http://www.publicdomainworks.net/>, our coordination of the response to
the Library of Congress' Future of Bibliographic Control (2007)
<http://blog.okfn.org/2007/12/19/response-to-the-future-of-bibliographic-control-draft-from-the-library-of-congress/> and
the recent creation of a new working group
<http://blog.okfn.org/2010/03/03/new-working-group-on-open-bibliographic-data/> onopen
bibliographic data <http://wiki.okfn.org/wg/bibliography> in March this
year.
