Some times ago I wrote a short blog on the number of SW Books[1], and
those numbers were a bit surprising. I also had short conversation on
#swig with some people (I remember CaptSolo and Danny Ayers) on various
other lists of books (they both have one…). The idea of putting it  on a
wiki page came up then. Based on the positive experience of moving the
Semantic Web Tool lists on the wiki[2] (quite a number of people have
helped maintaining that page since it was published!) I decided to do
something similar by collecting books on the subject. The result is on
the ESW Wiki[3]

Of course there are some caveats; it would be great if the community
helped in getting things right. Some of those:

 - I did not have all those books in hand :-). This also means that some
books that I put into the the "textbooks" category are, in fact,
collections of articles or proceedings, or vice versa...

 - for most of the books I could find the ISBN number and put a link to
the Worldcat library site[4] which gives a way of mapping ISBN-s (thanks
to DanC for this idea). However, some of the ISBN-s have no trace
on that site for example most of the non-English books. I am not sure
where to link those...

 - the main problem is of course the missing Italian, Chinese, Russian,
Chinese, etc. books. I have put books that I could find or know about
(and could read their titles at least), but I am sure thare are *lots*
of non-English books missing!

Nevertheless, I hope this is a good and useful start
