Dear Daniel,

Adding to the feedback you've already received...
The vocabulary that Europeana is planning to use in its RDF/linked data activities is at [1].

You were given quite some pointers to museums, let me give some on libraries :-) -- we're going to see more and more interaction between these different CH sectors in the coming years, this may be relevant for you as well.
There is an incubator group on library and linked data [2] and among our activites we've started to gather some  vocabularies [3] we found in use cases [4] relevant for our domain. This is still work in progress of course.

I cc our mailing list, so that you can directly ask more questions if you have some.



PS: Btw I'm really interested in these museum and linked data meet-ups--we should coordinate better all our activities!

> First of all, I would like to thank everyone for the warm welcome to this list and I am glad to see how helpful the LOD people can be.
> I will go through all the interesting information and hints that have been presented here and try to define my proposal. I already knew some of the initiatives, but this has been a great chance to get a better picture of the subject and the people working on this area. Hope we can collaborate in the near future.
