OpenBiblio Software

OpenBiblio is an open-source library and web application for running a catalogue and bibliography service for cultural works (books, music, films etc).

Significant features:

  • RDF linked data from the ground up
  • Designed for user editing and contribution of information (e.g. includes wiki-like recording of every change, access-control etc)
  • User-curated Collections — let users create their own bibliographies
  • Production tested (used to run <> with several million records)
  • Rich and powerful API (REST+JSON as well as SPARQL)

OpenBiblio is a project of the Open Knowledge Foundation and was made possible by support from Edinburgh University’s IDEALab.
