Thanks, Graham. I'm copying the group because if you'd stayed connected you would have said this in the meeting!

Sorry, had to drop off the Zakim line at 23 minutes past the hour, and cannot not reconnect for some reason. My apologies.

You were mentioning, Ivan, a possible 'RDFization' of ONIX. This is something that EDItEUR plans to document.

-- I would mostly agree with the point that Bill K made, that few publishers are aware of the work in the library community (eg that by Tim and Richard)
-- awareness of RDF is very low among commercial publishers (even academic publishers)
-- it is unlikely to be the widespread choice of syntax for publishers
-- I think some of the RDF expression of ONIX may well grow out of the same BISG group that is considering the mapping of ONIX to schema.org<http://schema.org>

The approach for that group will be to a) develop use cases and identify a relevant subset of ONIX b) investigate how much of that subset can be mapped to existing schema.org<http://schema.org> properties and then potentially c) suggest extensions to the schema.org<http://schema.org> vocabularies and classes. The group's will begin a) during November, but its work is expected to take at least 6 months and  probably a year.

I'm actually not connected to the internet at the moment (taking a holiday weekend -- I'm in a remote Yorkshire valley, and even the phone connection was fairly poor). Sorry. This message will get sent when I can reconnect.

Oh, NB, the Zakim bridge used to have a UK dial-in node ( +44 117 370 6152 I believe). Does this still work? I tried that number, but the call was not picked up.
