This is a (hasty?) gap analysis from the Archives Cluster:

Missing Vocabularies
- sometimes specific (physical state of original in a preservation  
context), sometimes general (need vocabularies for preservation data),  
but no vocabulary for the function or data elements

Data incompatibilities or lacks
- current data is free text, but contains quantitative information  
that needs to be pulled out
- data needs to be qualified as "estimated" or "derived" so users know  
it is not precise (this is possibly a vocabulary issue)
- current practice does not include rich relationships, just  
"related," so there is no source of relationships

Community guidance
- no examples in our community domain that we can follow
- lack of information on how to create a data model
- no community guidance on which technologies and vocabularies to use

Technology questions
- is linked data scalable to the size we need?
- is linked data appropriate for highly hierarchical data models?

Technology availability
- no systems available on market for linked data creation and use
- open source solutions available are in an unfinished state
