Through the grapevine -- specifically, Pascal Calarco -- I learned of the
following announcement regarding the application of CC licensing against
MARC records by the University of Florida:

 Beginning March 2011, the University of Florida Smathers
 Libraries implemented a policy to include a Creative Commons
 license in all of its original cataloging records. The records
 are considered public domain with unrestricted downstream use for
 any purpose.

 The following MARC 588 field (Source of Description Note) is
 added to new records contributed to WorldCat. It has not been
 added retrospectively to University of Florida original records
 in WorldCat.

   588::|a This bibliographic record is available under a
   Creative Commons CC0 license. The University of Florida
   Libraries, as creator of this bibliographic record, has
   waived all rights to it worldwide under copyright law,
   including all related and neighboring rights, to the extent
   allowed by law.

 The University of Florida OPAC (a Solr/Lucene search engine) is
 configured to display a Creative Commons CC0 license statement
 based on the presence of a University of Florida OCLC symbol in
 the MARC 040 field |a. The specified 040 |a is mapped to the
 originalcataloger_text field in the Solr/Lucene record if it
 exists in incoming records.  This allows the statement to be
 displayed in the OPAC for original records retrospectively, i.e.,
 records without the 588 field, and appear in RSS feeds.
