Some libraries can register for an account which can get MARC21, but
it has an anti-social non-commercial restriction which has
implications if you ever want to share your records.

BL is making some data available as Open Bibliographic Data (which
we endorse http://openbiblio.net/principles/endorse/ ) so hopefully
that will change in the future.

Hope that informs,
