--------------------------------

Submissions are sought for a special issue of Library Review on the
topic of 'Digital libraries and the Semantic Web: context,
applications and research'.

For many digital libraries or cultural institutions, the Semantic Web
offers an opportunity to better expose valuable digital resources
pertaining to research, culture or history, using common standards and
technologies in a collaborative and 'joined up' way. Semantic Web
technologies are capable of enhancing digital libraries or
repositories by facilitating improved user interfaces and
human-computer interaction, improved navigation and retrieval within
heterogeneous document environments, user profiling, personalisation
and contextualisation, etc. Such technologies also have the potential
to solve or aid the management of problems relevant to the LIS
community, such as semantic interoperability, advanced metadata and
information integration, the management of large corpora of
heterogeneous digital resources, and so forth.

This special themed issue of Library Review consolidates similarly
themed conferences (e.g. the International Conference on Semantic Web
and Digital Libraries (ICSD-2007)) and aims to demonstrate the
relevance and application of Semantic Web technologies to digital
libraries, repositories, and the LIS community generally.

Submissions are welcome from all interested parties and communities.
Submissions may comprise research papers, evaluation, case studies,
and descriptions of innovative projects, theoretical expositions, or
reviews.

Topics for submission could include, but are by no means limited to:

* Digital library and Semantic Web project case studies, best practice
examples, etc.
* Reviews of Semantic Web techniques and their actual (and potential)
application within digital libraries
* Innovative uses of RDF applications such as Simple Knowledge
Organization System (SKOS), Web Ontology Language (OWL),
Friend-of-a-Friend (FOAF), etc.
within digital libraries or similar environments
* Use of Semantic Web techniques in the deployment of Networked
Knowledge Organization Systems (NKOS), including terminology services
* Large scale metadata integration
* Knowledge organization and ontologies (including the application of
knowledge organization systems or ontologies in interfaces to digital
libraries)
* Ontological navigation and inferencing/reasoning techniques
* Methodologies for ontology management, evaluation, mapping, merging,
integration, etc.
* Semantically rich interfaces to digital libraries
* Management, use and navigation of bibliographic data using Semantic
Web technologies
* Semantic Web approaches to information retrieval within digital libraries
* Storage, manipulation, querying of RDF data
* Technology and Semantic Web modelling tools
* Knowledge organization systems and user interfaces at the crossroads

Owing to the aim of this special issue, submissions on the above noted
topics are encouraged to:

* Emphasise the practical implications of Semantic Web research or
developments for digital libraries and repositories;
* Where possible, endeavour to note the relevance of research findings
for future digital library management or service provision;
* Comment on areas of useful overlap between the digital library and
Semantic Web developments and how the aims of each community can be
furthered by increased collaboration.

Extended deadline are as follows:

* Monday 22nd October 2007: deadline for submission of papers
* Monday 19th November 2007: acceptance notification
* Friday 17th December 2007: submission of 'camera ready' version
(complete with reviewers' revisions/changes)
* Spring 2008: publication of special issue

All submissions will be subject to double blind peer review, should be
no more than 5,000 words, and should follow the journal style.
Submissions can be emailed directly to the guest editor:
