Harvard's metadata release

Any chance this can be used to make Bookpedia (or any others) even better? Perhaps make non-English entries easier?

More open data sources, that is great news. Thank you for the links. Once it comes online we can build plug-in and include it in Bookpedia. At the moment it's under development and searches return no results, so will have to wait see how it develops. The people using it at the moment are downloading the raw data set ad that would be impractical as a plug-in for Bookpedia as it would require users to download the raw data as well.
