Some key points about biblios.net are:
- It's built with completely open source software, and released under the GPL, just like Koha.
- The data in the giant record store (currently 35 million records) are licensed under the Open Data Commons license. Anyone can use the records, modify them, etc. This is in stark contrast to many national libraries and organizations like OCLC, who view the data as owned by them.
- The service is free for anyone to use, meaning that libraries have a free cataloging tool and a free data store.
