Essentially this uses "Linked Data terms" as shorthand. Consider using it analogously to an acronym, i.e.:

   In order maximize linkability with other datasets, library datasets must be
   expressed using Linked Data terms--properties, classes, and concepts that have well-defined
   relationships to those 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.

This means that "properties, classes, and concepts" would be used only once in the first sentence, replacing what seems to me an awkward clause:

PS-I do like "align".
