OCLC publishes RILM XML data

OCLC First Search has recently republished the complete RILM data set formatted in XML. Data going back to 1967 (and to 1835 in the case of conference proceedings) are unified for the first time, greatly facilitating full-text linking. Other features that have become available thanks to the XML data include the display of all non-roman writing systems and original language abstracts, in addition to the ones in English. NISC and OVID users can expect a similar data upgrade in the coming months.
