>> It is still not 100% clear to me, sorry. I can buy most of it, it's just that I think there could be some use in e.g., acquisition data, as there is in circulation data. To tell the truth as I'm not aware of how precise these notions are, I had intuitively categorized circulation data as library management data. Since we have use cases for circulation data, I found the entire thing quite puzzling...
> I wasn't aware of use cases for circ data. I think the issue is whether we are mainly or solely talking about bibliographic data. If we wish to refer to other library data than I'm not sure we've really covered it in the report. We don't mention NCIP (circulation data), SUSHI (statistics), serials holdings, RFID standards nor numerous other standards being used in those systems. Our examples in the vocabulary area seem to all be bibliographic. Perhaps if we don't want to exclude these others we need to say that although they could potentially be used as linked data, they have not yet been defined as such.

There is a sentence on this at

"Relatively fewer bibliographic datasets have been made available as Linked Data, and relatively less metadata for journal articles, citations, or circulation data -- information which could be put to effective use in environments where data is integrated seamlessly across contexts."

We had in fact a couple of comments on this at http://blogs.ukoln.ac.uk/w3clld/2011/06/26/available-vocabularies-and-datasets/#14 . But we couldn't really think of doing more...
