Carole, all: 

The (only) projects I know about that might fit this description are:

1) The SWAN/CiTO work, trying to integrate PRISM, done within the auspices of Tim's Scientific Discourse subgroup of the HCLS WG (http://esw.w3.org/HCLSIG/SWANSIOC) which David Shotton is a key participant in (and therefore probably not what he is referring to?);
2) ORCID, a multi-publisher initiative for a joint researcher ID that Geoff is also involved in (http://orcid.org/); but that is not really covered by the description 'a working group on library bibliographic data and the semantic web, with at least one of its goals to help libraries participate in the Linked Open Data'. 

I do think this is a very good idea, however, and am involved in 2 EU proposals to connect LOD initiatives to what is going on in the digital repositories universe. It would be good to also make this connection via the HCLS group: does anyone have an idea who would be good contacts from the DL community? I've copied David Rosenthal at Stanford Library on this discussion: David, perhaps you have any ideas about people to talk to who are working on LOD initiatives from the repositories' end?

Can anyone please confirm this rumour and provide details?

	"The rumor mill tells us that the World Wide Web consortium <http://w3c.org/>  is forming a working group on library bibliographic data and the semantic web, with at least one of its goals to help libraries participate in the Linked Open Data <http://linkeddata.org/>  movement and become better integrated with other data on the web." 
	

Many thanks, 

David
