Hi all,


Web services with simple (and mostly non-RDF) interfaces are important
to make our work accessible. A service delivering a JSON and/or XML
representation of Linked Data entities makes it much more probable that
this data is re-used by a broad community of developers inside and
outside the library world. This is especially true for (value)
vocabulary sercies, but could become relevant for example for services
identifying a work, too. 


Such services are mentioned in a number of use cases (e.g. [1], [2],
[3]), but, as they are not in the focus of each single case, play a
subordinated role there. As far as I've seen, they are not on the agenda
of one of our clusters. So I'm afraid they could slip through the net
for our final report.


In my eyes, this would be a pitty, and I wonder how we could make linked
data based library web services part of our work. 


What do you think?


Cheers, Joachim
