I also have this:
http://www.slideshare.net/nw13/establishing-the-connection-creating-a-linked-data-version-of-the-bnb

Would using "challenges", as proposed by Karen, solve the issue? Honestly I don't remember what the list is: probably eliciting links to URIs from MARC records, finding a good data model...
