Yes, I think they would necessarily be coupled with library specific
datasets and/or vocabularies. I agree that the point of much of the
linked data / semweb technology stack is that the tools are domain
agnostic: e.g. good for biology as well as libraries.

I wonder if this wiki page on tools could discuss this, and link out
to lists of semweb tools, and list any library linked data specific
tools that are available. I think Karen't point about taking the user
into consideration is important too. Some tools are useful for
software developers, and others for catalogers, etc. I'd like to help
make the page reflect who the user is, if possible.
