Hello,

I am Monica Duke, working at UKOLN [1] and representing JISC [2].  UKOLN 
works with libraries in HE in the UK and also with the cultural heritage 
sector.  Although I am a software developer by title, my time is also 
split between research and advisory activities.  In the last ten years 
at UKOLN I have gained knowledge of and used the main digital library 
technologies, working broadly in the areas of resource discovery and 
interoperability (through JISC projects), with particular experience in 
aggregators for repositories using OAI-PMH, as well as the XML-related 
standards.  I have had an interest in Semantic Web standards and 
activities since working on a joint project with Dan Brickley and Libby 
Miller (both then at ILRT, Bristol) in 2000.  My latest work is on 
citation of data sets, and exporting the aggregated metadata from UK HE 
repositories to the TALIS platform.

This is my first experience of being involved in a W3C group and of 
standards-making activity.  I am currently trying to get up to speed and 
getting my bearings around the main links to information that I need to 
explore, in order to try and participate actively in the group.  I won't 
always be able to take part in telcons (apologies for last week's 
absence) due to my working hours, but I will try and arrange to attend 
some and hope to find other ways to contribute.

Regards,
Monica
