Purpose: Provides a forum for discussion of issues related to Linked Library Data and the role of library metadata in the Semantic web. Goals include: raising awareness of Semantic Web technologies, such as the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and the use of URIs as identifiers within bibliographic descriptions; promoting research on linked data challenges, such as domain modeling and vocabulary selection and design; and informing the ongoing development of existing metadata standards for Libraries, Archives and Cultural Heritage Institutions.

Request for feedback about IGs

    The Core transition is changing, in some cases, how interest groups (IGs) operate within ALA. The ALCTS/LITA Linked Library  Data IG (LLDIG) is assessing how its role can and should change and whether the IG serves a need in the Core community. This IG currently hosts panel events twice a year at ALA and ALA Midwinter and manages a list serv. There are two co-chairs and no formal membership. Due to the changing nature of MARC and non-MARC metadata, there is often overlapping content from this IG and other IGs.

    My co-chair, Ben Riesenberg, and I request feedback from the Core community regarding (1) what is considered typical for IGs and (2) what do you recommend for the future of LLDIG?
