The W3C has announced an incubator activity around Library Linked Data. I’ll be one of DERI’s participants in the group.
Its mission? To help increase global interoperability of library data on the Web, and to bring together people from archives, museums, publishing, etc. to talk about metadata. See the charter for more details.
Interested in joining? If you’re at a W3C member organization, ask your Advisory Committee Representative to appoint you. Or, get appointed as an invited expert by contacting one of the chairs (Tom Baker, Emmanuelle Bermes, Antoine Isaac); their contact info is available from the participants’ list.
The first teleconference will be Thursday, 3 June at 1500 UTC.
