Bibliographic Roadmap

Work to make vocabularies work across systems

Work to make vocabularies work across systems - create and manage mappings; work on diversity issues, such as how to connect bibliographic data to scientific data; explore exchange formats and application profiles.

Bibliographic Roadmap

Further explore rules-related challenges

Given the impact of rules, authority issues, where core, basic data is required; there is a need for extensibility/scalability; and data and standards are dynamic, should we:

identify the scale of the problem; determine its starting point; determine format and cataloging rules; manage semantic vocabularies and content through application community profiles; determine question of how one size can fit all (libraries,... more »

Overview of current discovery service landscape

Recent talks by Oren Beit-Arie have reminded me that the current discovery service landscape (specifically that of information providers in centrally-indexed search products) is very similar to the first years of participation in OpenURL.
