Hi Jodi,

Thanks for the feedback! I think these are good ideas to take onboard, but as the material on available data has changed quite a lot in the past weeks, I'd like to be sure for which part, you'd suggest this introductory paragraph :-)

- the "Data availability" sub-section (in "current situation") of the main report
has a small introduction
The success of linked library data relies on the ability of its practitioners to identify, re-use or connect to existing datasets and data models. Linked datasets and vocabularies that are essential in the library and related domains, however, have previously been unknown or unfamiliar to many. The LLD XG has thus initiated an inventory of available library-related linked data, which is presented in further detail in Section @@TODO@@ and has lead to the observations below.

- the "Available Vocabularies and Datasets" technical section at the end of the main report
also has stuff presenting the inventory

I agree that both may not address all your points. But together they already give a lot. If I'm to adapt one of them, which one would you recommend?

> --due to general lack of familiarity
> --due to the importance of reusing vocabularies
> -showing the adoption of semweb and the maturity of existing vocabularies
> --there are many areas with mature vocabularies
> --there are other areas where libraries could participate in the innovation if they desire
