Yes, absolutely!  Adding them by Thursday would be ideal,
but Friday is okay too.  Contributions submitted after Friday
will also be gratefully received but we may have trouble
working them into the F2F discussion in Pittsburgh.

As a capsule overview, you could point them to [1].

The elevator pitch is that LLD XG is chartered for one year
(i.e., through May 2011) to produce "a state of the art report
on the adoption of Linked data principles and perspective in
the library domain and related sectors, leading to a clear and
agreed view regarding what further standards and guidelines
should be developed, and what organization should be set up
in order to develop them".

In other words, the XG is not set up to answer questions or
offer advice, but to analyze requirements, survey the state
of developments in this area, and identify follow-on actions
to be planned.
