I thought I had sent that a while ago... appears it was still in my
draft folder :-(

Following the action :
ACTION: Chairs to prepare press release with W3C [recorded in

Here is a draft press release, feedback welcome.
As I mentionned during the telecon, this is basically a mix between
the regular W3C press release format for incubator group reports, and
the beginning of our executive summary.


Incubator group report - Library Linked Data

The W3C Library Linked Data Incubator Group has published their final report.

The group worked from May 2010 until August 2011, this final report
being the main outcome of this activity. The mission of the incubator
group was to help increase global interoperability of library data on
the Web. At this time, libraries and other cultural heritage or memory
institutions, including museums and archives, show a great interest in
sharing data on the Web. Existing library applications showcase the
benefits of adopting Semantic Web standards and Linked Data
principles, in order to publish valuable information assets that
library create and curate, such as bibliographic data, lists of
concepts, names, persons, etc.

The work of the group  originates from a set of use cases contributed
by a variety of parties ranging from small, independent projects to
activities in national libraries. From these the group extracted
benefits, a brief report of the current state of library linked data,
and recommendations for next steps. Our analysis also features
detailed inventories of available vocabularies and technologies.

This publication is part of the Incubator Activity, a forum where W3C
Members can innovate and experiment. This work is not on the W3C
standards track.
