New developments on Public Domain Works!

We have now completed a major load of data into the Public Domain Works database:


There are now 125318 persons, 12840 items and 299141 works in the
database. The data we have there comes primarily from two sources:
people and book data from Philip Harper’s [NGCOBA]( and recordings data from the online discographies provided by KCL’s [CHARM project](

We also have a load more sound recordings data (~ 600k items) almost
ready to go courtesy of [Edward Betts]( and the [Open Library]( (And we are yet to even get started on the BBC GRAMS data …).

Also work on the [public domain calculators]( is still ticking over. Gisle Hannemyr recently put together a first draft of a [copyright flowchart for Norway](
