The same way they find out about any other interesting data on the Semantic Web.  Sometimes their friends tell them, sometimes they use their favorite semantic search engine, sometimes they look at commonly used URL paths (e.g., http://somesite.example/metadata ), etc.  A community might publish a list of these mappings, for example.
