Hi, I'm Ray Denenberg, with the Library of Congress. 

I've been at LC since 1983. During the first five years here I worked on projects that led directly to the definition of the Z39.50 protocol (I was the principal author of Z39.50), and for the 10 years following I was responsible for its development and maintenance and also spent many years on the development of other protocols, for example the ISO ILL protocol and even had a hand in the early work of OAI. In 2000 I initiated the development of SRU/CQL (originally referred to as "Z39.50 Next Generation") and have been responsible for its development and maintenance, and I now chair the OASIS committee moving it to standardization. 

I was an original participant in the Dublin Core initiative, and though I haven't participated in that work for the past 10 years,  I have been directly involved in other metadata initiatives, having written the MODS, MADS, and PREMIS (2.0) schemas.  

Our office is involved in a project ot provide granularity to LCSH headings to enable identification of facets in subject headings and including name authorities in id.loc.gov. In conjunction, we are developing an RDF expression of MADS. 

I am the LC W3C Advisory Committee representative, and have been since we joined the W3C, in 1999.
