MARC records to be available with Creative Commons license???

This potential earthshaking announcement is buried in the awarding of a Mellon Grant to Maison Bisson for work on an innovative merging of blogging software and library catalogs (I’ll just say that it is detailed, and interesting, and could change the OPAC in ways we have only dreamed about).

I was only able to find the Creative Commons MARC records information in this blog post, so I will leave this as unconfirmed at this point.  If it is accurate, however, it could be a great step towards making electronic records available to libraries with little or no budget for automation.
