Kevin, Joachim,

My first thought it that it may be a technical topic rather addressed in another section of a report, rather than a (family/cluster of) use case.
But anyway it's interesting to discuss it: even if it was indeed not a cluster topic, it would still be important to say something on it somewhere!



PS: I'moving to our group's list the discussion on whether to make this a cluster or something else. But of course if anyone has a contribution to make on the content of the topic (e.g., to bring a use case) that can be done on the community list!

> I couldn't agree more with Joachim's observation.  This group has identified Use Cases for vocabulary alignment and new ontology development, for example, but little focus has been given to the web services and/or network protocols that may need to be defined and formalized to better facilitate exchange, sharing, and linking.
> I'd be happy to shepherd a new cluster on this aspect.

> Hi all,
> Web services with simple (and mostly non-RDF) interfaces are important to make our work accessible. A service delivering a JSON and/or XML representation of Linked Data entities makes it much more probable that this data is re-used by a broad community of developers inside and outside the library world. This is especially true for (value) vocabulary sercies, but could become relevant for example for services identifying a work, too.
> Such services are mentioned in a number of use cases (e.g. [1], [2], [3]), but, as they are not in the focus of each single case, play a subordinated role there. As far as I've seen, they are not on the agenda of one of our clusters. So I'm afraid they could slip through the net for our final report.
> In my eyes, this would be a pitty, and I wonder how we could make linked data based library web services part of our work.
> What do you think?
> Cheers, Joachim
