As Hugh says, it's a hot topic at the moment.  If you're in London,
there's a meetup on December 16
looking specifically at biography records in this case.  It's part of
an on-going series of meetups and conversations for museum
technologists and developers who want to consume museum metadata -
some overviews of current thinking and proposals are at

Mostly those conversations are about catalogue and interpretative data
rather than museums-as-organisations but people there might know of
related work.  There's also a linked data group on the museum 3.0 ning

cheers, Mia
