New use cases still discussed in Pittsburgh?

Can we still add use cases to the program and discuss them in Pittsburgh?

I just called with the owner-to-be of the "Enriched Publications UC" (as 
I think I would call it) that was posted on the Dutch SemWeb mailing 
list. He's Maurice van der Feesten, project manager Knowledge 
Infrastructure from Surf foundation [1]. See below for his post.

Most information is there, just not yet in the UC format, but he'll send 
a first version soon.

Maurice  is involed with 350 people in several places and projects 
working on enriched publications in the Netherlands. He was asking if I 
could write down what the XG is and what we can do for them. He could 
then forward this message to the 350 people so we can be properly linked 
up with this community. Some tips as what to what newbie-Mark should 
(not) write down in the message to Maurice and colleagues are 
appreciated. Or is there something I can reuse? The group is diverse, 
from librarians to technicians and user interface experts.

I was thinking along the lines that the XG can help out in RDF and LOD 
related questions, useful schemas, patterns etc. and encourage them to 
read/post to the public mailing list.



Hi Emanuele,

A use case the W3C could use for 'LinkedData in Libraries' (http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/) might be in a slight different perspective than you might have imagined.
SURFfoundation is creating together with several University libraries so called "Enhanced Publications". Creating semantic relations between the traditional publication and the adjacent/supplementary (web)resources such as background information, data and rich media.
See the video:http://www.youtube.com/user/StichtingSURF#p/a/u/2/e_KJTsr1fys
Lots and lots of these 'Enhanced Publications'  create the possibility for the end-user to browse and reuse the nodes of knowledge resources in a way that wasn't possible before, discovering new publications in other domains than the original dataset was intended to be used  and opening-up new research possibilities. Example use case:http://escape.utwente.nl

Literature about this topic:

------Referring to the mission of the Library Linked Data incubator group:------
Furthermore the Research Library community in SURF has built a rich history of creating semantic interoperability. Guidelines, vocabularies, application profiles have evolved to create a distributed network of connected library systems in the Netherlands. See:http://purl.org/REP/standards
The networked representation/result can be seen in a portal where all research information in the Netherlands has been put together:http://narcis.nl  (formally known as darenet.nl)
These guidelines have had international impact in the repository community and have been formed in the DRIVER guidelines and translated in several languages.http://www.driver-support.eu/managers.html#guidelines  ; this has been adopted by the Confederation of Open Access Repositories, see:http://coar-repositories.org/  Also this has continuing up-take in the OpenAIRE project with interoperable extensions, see:http://www.openaire.eu/en/about-openaire/publications-presentations.html

Is this enough information for a use case?

All the best
Maurice Vanderfeesten
