No deal with OCLC - Kungliga biblioteket

Connotea Imports 2012-07-31


"The National Library has ended negotiations with OCLC, as the parties could not successfully come to terms on a contract....The negotiations primarily dealt with two issues: on the one hand, the conditions for uploading the Swedish union catalogue Libris database into OCLC’s WorldCat;the question of license/ownership for copying bibliographic records from WorldCat for use in Libris.... A fundamental condition for the entire Libris collaboration is voluntary participation. Libraries that catalogue in Libris can take out all their bibliographic records and incorporate them instead into another system, or use them in anyway the library finds suitable. The National Library makes no claim of controlling how bibliographic records taken from Libris are used....Bibliographic records exported from WorldCat cannot be used and further exported in just any way, according to the OCLC agreement...."
