Thanks for sharing, I had read about it on the NYT but nothing was said 
on license.
So now the USA have more open bibliographic data than Germany/Europe? :)
lobid.org is a very nice initiative, but other catalog systems have very 
complex interactions between hundreds or thousands of entities and it's 
very hard to change the licenses.
The main problem is usually deduplication and quality of the records, 
any information on this for Harvard's data?
