I'm tempted to say "align" here, and I think that some vagueness in the
text can be resolved by spelling out that datasets are expressed using
properties, classes, and concepts [1]:

    Align library data standards with the Linked Data space

    In order maximize linkability with other datasets, library datasets must be
    expressed using properties, classes, and concepts that have well-defined
    relationships to properties, classes, and concepts used in the wider Linked
    Data space. This can be done in two ways: by using Linked Data vocabularies
    based on existing standards, such as ISO language names; and by defining
    explicit relationships ("alignments") between the Linked Data terms of the
    library world and those of other communities.

-- Note: "Linked Data terms" in order to avoid a tedious repetition of "properties,
   classes, and concepts"...
