Barbara, can you provide a short statement about this that we could  
build on? I think the issues are:

- what is the logical community to take this on? (assuming not an  
institution but a broader coalition including semantic web folks and  
- can we identify a process?
- what will libraries need to make this a reality? (not that it all  
can be done right away, but for the purposes of planning)

?? There are probably other aspects that we need to cover, so anything  
else you -- or anyone on the list -- can think of.

>      * 1.3 The library standards process is highly top-down and non-agile

>      * 2.2 Identify issues for migration to LLD, both technical,

>      * 2.3 Identify areas where existing library community standards

>      * 2.4 Identify tools that are needed to support the creation  
> and use of LLD
>      * 2.5 Analysis for the transformation of current library data to LLD
>            o 2.5.1 Deduplication
>      * 2.6 Cultivate a research and development environment
>      * 2.7 Create educational opportunities
>      * 2.8 Include metadata design in library and information  
> science education
>      * 2.9 Foster a discussion about open data and rights
