Subject: [hcls] The Bibliographic Ontology Specification Group

I want to bring an initiative to your attention that should be of interest
to many of the participants of the HCLS: The "Bibliographic Ontology
Specification Group". As I have already summarized on a ESW Wiki page [1],
we are currently lacking a common way for representing bibliographic
information, and this is a highly undesirable state -- references to
