AW: LD and Redundancy

Since libraries are already starting to publish linked open bibliographic data - which is a good thing! -, each one with its own uris, which is unavoidable, the importance of co-reference services (such as sameas.org) will grow. Since the already used identities for catalog records are much wider spread than for authorities, I'm not sure that a centralized model for building clusters (like VIAF) or a pre-declared central hub ("everybody maps to WorldCat/OpenLibrary/whatever") could work. 

An important issue for the report, indeed, even if we were not able to suggest solutions.

Cheers, Joachim
