This sounds great... what do you mean by "the Wiki [being] available anywhere WorldCat records are" ? Under what license would the wiki content be placed?

There has been some discussion among Wikipedians of separating out a freely-licensed citations database, in structured format. This would ideally support metadata like comments about cites, and allow for cleaner and more detailed references in bibliographies and footnotes.

See the Wikicite project purpose and the broader Wikicite meta-proposal.



We haven't worked out the details, but the intention is to make the content as widely available as possible.

Thanks for the links.
