Re: Is there a vocabulary to describe a Z39.50 interface in RDF?

Like perhaps many on this list, I was hoping someone would jump in  
with "Sure, it's right here!" But I guess not. There was a call not  
long ago for folks to consider creating vocabularies for common ILS  
functions. It seems that this fits into that area and would be very  

The big dilemma that I see is how we will keep track of the many  
vocabs that are being created so that we don't get people re-inventing  
because they don't know what already exists. There needs to be  
something like a clearinghouse for LLD-related vocabs, or at least a  
hash keyword that we use to make them all retrievable.
