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.

>      * 2.5 Analysis for the transformation of current library data to LLD

>      * 2.6 Cultivate a research and development environment
>      * 2.7 Create educational opportunities

>      * 2.9 Foster a discussion about open data and rights
