Research Libraries UK (RLUK) welcomes the University of Exeter as its latest member. RLUK now represents 34 of the leading research libraries in the UK and Ireland.
Research Libraries UK, through JISC and MIMAS, makes available a large database of bibliographic data. RLUK very much supports the idea of open bibliographic data, and is a signatory to the Discovery Open Metadata Principles (http://discovery.ac.uk/businesscase/principles/). RLUK estimates that approximately 16 million bibliographic records in its database are free from restrictions in terms of redistribution and open licensing.
