Thanks Karen. By the way I really liked your recent blog post All the
___ in the World [1]. I think the service orientation you described is
essential for the Benefits to Researchers, Students and Patrons
section [2].

Mendeley and Zotero are good examples of such services. In my opinion
getting library, museum and archives data out as linked and open data
will help serve as a foundation for these sorts of services. If the
data is closed off, and not available on the web in a coherent way it
will raise the barrier to entry for creating these services.

Makes me wonder if maybe the benefits section needs a section on
benefits for businesses...
